Students and alums: Set up your online career portfolio now!

Have you signed up for College Central, UH Hilo's internship and employment placement site?

www.collegecentral.com/hilo-hawaii/

Your college degree isn't a golden ticket to a dream job.There are already more college graduates than there are jobs for them [1]. Employers can pick and choose, and the competition is fierce!

41% of recent college graduates earn $25,000 a year or less [2] and a quarter of college graduates earn no more than the average high school graduate [3].

How can you stand out in this competitive job market? Employers and internship providers are looking for more than a transcript. They want to see what you can do.

And with College Central's new portfolio service, you can show them. Job seekers can build, add work experiences, and share their career portfolios with employers. As UH Hilo alumni, you can continue to expand and refine their career portfolios throughout their careers. UH Hilo has invested in this service and made it free for you!

Don't get left behind. Sign up today, or log in and start building your portfolio.
