ANN ARBOR, MICH. (November 18, 2015) – Georgetown University School of Medicine has selected Seelio by Keypath Education as an integrative learning and career preparation tool for its students.

With a long history of preparing students to seek knowledge in service of the community, Georgetown University places 90 percent of its medical students into one of their top three residency choices each year. Students will now have access to Seelio throughout their learning experience to track and document learning outcomes.

“We want to determine if this tool will assist students in forming their professional identity, integrating learning that occurs in and outside of the classroom, and connecting in a new way with advisors throughout their journey as medical professionals,” said Dr. Maria Marquez, assistant dean for reflection and assessment, Georgetown University School of Medicine.

All first-year students will be introduced to Seelio in 2016, with the opportunity to bring Seelio to more students based on the initial launch period’s success.

Recognizing reflective practice as imperative for integrative learning, Georgetown University School of Medicine faculty and administrators are working with Seelio’s service team to identify touch points throughout the student experience where students will be prompted to document and connect key learning experiences. Students will record these learning experiences in professional profiles as members of groups, or learning families, where they will receive continual feedback from peers and faculty. With evidence of student learning on Seelio, faculty can now better track learning outcomes and advise students on a more meaningful, holistic level.

As students and faculty capture key learning experiences on Seelio, Georgetown University School of Medicine will have galleries of student work for each learning family to demonstrate student learning outcomes.

“We’re excited to work with Georgetown University School of Medicine as it empowers students to reflect on key learning experiences throughout their journey to become leading medical professionals,” said Moses Lee, co-founder of Seelio and group president at Keypath Education.

Career Fair Advice From the Other Side of the Table: What a Fortune 500 Company Looks For

Header for Seelio Career Advice Roundup

Advice You Can Use at Your Next Career Fair

Recruiting season is in full swing!

We caught up with one recruiter from a Fortune 500 company who was on campus at the University of Michigan last week. This company is a major player in the energy space and is frequently on campus recruiting for talented undergraduate students to join their general sales and marketing internship program. We only had a minute but grabbed some quick advice from this recent MBA grad turned recruiter so you can blow employers away at your next career fair or recruiting session!

What impressed you most about the students you met with?

I was extremely impressed with how much students had already accomplished. From having performed deep, substantive work for both large companies and startups, to volunteering for social impact organizations, to a wide variety eye-opening international travel experiences, the breadth of their experiences was phenomenal.

One student came in with an example of a pitch deck that he put together for a student investing club that he’s involved in. This impressed us, both because it showed his initiative and intellectual curiosity to get involved in real work outside the classroom, and because it enabled him to better illustrate the type of analysis that he’s capable of.

What were you surprised that students didn’t know?

Many of the students we talked with struggled to place their experiences in context and explain how the arc of their experiences has led them to be interested in this specific opportunity with our company. Some also struggled to convey what they perceive to be their weaknesses in an open, honest way.

What do you look for to move an applicant forward?

In a nutshell, we look for how their experience has led them to be a great fit for this opportunity, and how well they’re able to convey that.

Now that you’re recruiting, what do you wish you had known when you were on the other side of the table? 

It’s not always about having an extremely intricate knowledge of the company or any one specific interview answer. It’s more about a high level narrative that matches your experiences with this particular opportunity, and your overall ability to communicate your thoughts effectively that matters.


One more tip from us? Taking time to reflect on your experiences, and writing them down (or capturing them on Seelio!) can help you better tell your story to recruiters.
