MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University graduates may have better luck landing a job, thanks to a new partnership between the school and a Michigan company that helps build online portfolios.
The Department of Communication Studies is partnering with Seelio, an Ann Arbor-based startup that lets students show their work on a tablet.
Associate Professor Andrew Weber says the resume gets an interview, but it's the portfolio that sets someone apart.
The service is free. WVU is one of only seven universities and colleges that serve as an official partner.
Seelio co-founder Moses Lee says the company is excited to see how the collaborations might reshape higher education.
Seelio is currently producing a mobile app that will let students add projects and display their portfolio, too. It's expected to debut later this year.
