Overview of student profile/resume/portfolio for students

  • In this article, we will explain what a student profile/resume/portfolio is and what information students can fill out in each section.
A profile could also be referred to as a resume or a portfolio by counselors

What is student profile?

Student profile on SchooLinks is like an online resume. Here students can input information about themselves like their strengths, achievements, job experiences, awards, etc.

The more information they give, the more colleges will be able to learn about them and the more personalized their search for colleges will become. Also, when they send requests for letters of recommendation, the people they ask will be able to look at their profile to help them write an awesome letter of rec for the student.

Student Profiles take some time to fill out; SchooLinks recommends not trying to fill out profiles in one sitting.
