Student Spotlight: Kaley Young, Purdue University Calumet

Surprised by Seelio- The Difference A Semester Can Make

We know there are lot of choices out there for sharing your professional story. At Seelio, our goal is to make sure that it’s as easy as possible to take the things you’re experiencing in and out of school and connect them to whatever it is that you want to do next.

A lot of students first encounter Seelio in one of their classes, and we know that with papers, projects, exams, and all of the other things that come with school that it can take awhile to get comfortable with something new. That’s where our service team comes in. They’re always at the ready to help students and faculty get started and have a great experience on Seelio.

One day, David, one of our educational service leads struck up a conversation with a student at one of his partner schools to see how things were going. We loved hearing her story and wanted to share it with you in case you just learned about Seelio in one of your classes and you’re wondering what it’s all about.

Without further ado, meet Kaley Young, a recent graduate from Purdue University Calumet who studied Management Information Systems and encountered Seelio in her Honors Capstone course.

This School Year, Bring Your Resume to Life with Seelio and LinkedIn

We’ve shared before how you can spruce up your LinkedIn profile and bring your resume to life with works from your Seelio profile.

Today we want to show you how Michael Baker put that advice into action. Michael is a student we first met at the University of Toledo who graduated, finished one master’s degree at Georgetown University and is now getting a second master’s in economics at American University while working at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Michael Baker on Seelio

Michael hasn’t left many stones unturned throughout his higher education experience. From working on a capstone project with NASA to a going on a service learning trip in Costa Rica, he was on the look out for experiences both in and out of the classroom that could bring his skills to life. Better than just finding the experiences, he saw that he could bring his resume to life by posting about them on Seelio so others could see the skills he developed and the lessons he learned.

Michael first encountered Seelio as a student at The University of Toledo’s Jesup Scott Honors College. But even after he graduated, he saw a way to put his Seelio to work for him– on LinkedIn! When we asked if we could share his profiles as an example for other young professionals we also asked if he had any advice to share. Here’s his great tip:

“Any experience, no matter the field or the scale, helped to develop you to who you are today. Document it and talk about it at length, because if you don’t, no one else will either!”

Michael is absolutely right. Did you work on something this summer that you can share on your Seelio? Take a moment to upload it– you never know how helpful it will be when it’s time to bring your resume to life for a potential graduate school admissions officer or employer!

How A Large Lecture Course of Over 200 Students Built a Community of Collaboration and Inspiration on Seelio

Media and the Creative Process 1020 Collage

Student Advice on Getting the Most Out of Your Large Lecture Course

Have you ever taken a class that was unlike any other? One that challenged you to get out of your comfort zone and make things in addition to learning about them?

Have you ever wished you could see what your classmates are up to to find inspiration or people that can work on exciting projects with you?

We encountered a group of students at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication who are experiencing that and more in MDIA 1020: Media and the Creative Process. In this large lecture course, students complete regular project-based assignments using a variety of media platforms to put their learning into action. See more about the class philosophy and structure in our earlier post.

This is one of Scripps’ bigger courses, with around 200 students. Yet, even with such a large class size (and both online and on-campus students) we heard again and again that students found it easy to collaborate and find inspiration from their classmates.

 

How?
We want to turn things over to a few students in MDIA 1020 who shared what made this large lecture class so unique and what it was like using Seelio in the class. See who chimed in:
