Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
The Purdue University Krannert School of Management and the Purdue University College of Liberal Arts will launch a pilot program with ViewYou in the Fall semester of 2012. The goal of the pilot program is to assist students as they seek internship and employment opportunities. Students will complete a ViewYou profile inclusive of a brief, professionally produced HD video introduction. This profile will provide employers with insight into a student’s demeanor, personality and overall soft skills not measurable through traditional employment documentation. ViewYou profiles also include supporting documents such as a resume, writing sample, transcripts, and job preference information.
"Purdue is continually seeking new and innovative methods in which we can showcase a student’s specific skills and overall talent" says Tim Luzader of the Purdue University Center for Career Opportunities. "We are confident that the ViewYou profile will assist in highlighting students’ abilities and better position them for internship and career opportunities."
Students will have a unique opportunity to promote their presentation and personal skills prior to a face to face interview by using the ViewYou platform.
"It's a privilege to work with Purdue and specifically the School of Management and the College of Liberal Arts” said Jason Randolph, a principal of ViewYou. “This level of talent is particularly well-suited for the ViewYou video profile."
Both colleges intend to integrate the ViewYou video profile capture into selected course curriculum. Once the profile is completed, students may send their profile link to employers offering opportunities anywhere in the world. Qualified employers will be able to seek student talent from the ViewYou database through a Purdue University web portal free of charge. Students respond to employer inquiries at their discretion and the conversation begins.
