Seelio vs. LinkedIn

When I talk to students about Seelio, some questions I often get are “How is Seelio different than LinkedIn?” and “Why should I use Seelio instead of LinkedIn?” After spending 2 years helping students, faculty and administrators at our partner universities use Seelio, I have a lot to say on the topic. I love LinkedIn and use it regularly; in fact, I used to work in career services at the University of Michigan and helped students learn how to use LinkedIn. But the two sites are very different from one another, and Seelio has some very distinct strengths that LinkedIn doesn’t share.

So I’m writing this blog post to clear up any uncertainty. Here are three main reasons college students should be using Seelio.

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.

Career Series: Top Five Interview Tips

top five interview tipsYou have heard all the basics when it comes to the interview process:  research the company, prepare for common interview questions, and follow-up with a thank you.  But, the information is always so general.  Wouldn’t some real life examples be nice?  Well, read on for our top five interview tips.

I joined the Seelio team in January, so I just went through the interview process a few months ago.  I have been through the process several times, and was even most recently teaching an undergraduate business course on career planning.  So, I didn’t need to prep too much, right?  Wrong!  I knew that putting in hours of prep would help me really stand out in the interview, and these tips are designed to help you do the same.
