ANN ARBOR — Seelio, a digital portfolio platform for college students and recruiters, announced the opening of the Seelio Jobs Board.

Students and recruiters can now search jobs and prospective candidates to find the right fit, leading to more enjoyable careers and less turnover.

Seelio goes beyond the black-and-white resume to showcase talent to a host of recruiting companies, including Facebook.

Through Seelio, students can develop dynamic portfolios as they plan their ventures into the working world. Additionally, companies can evaluate students’ accomplishments and personalities through a variety of content, including videos, graphics and presentations.

“Recent jobs reports indicate the 18-29 age group faces an estimated 13 percent unemployment rate, and college graduates need the most help in differentiating themselves from the ever-growing competition,” said Moses Lee, Seelio CEO and co-founder. “Seelio challenges the standard resume process to create new ways for this group to creatively showcase their personalities and skillsets to potential employers.”

Since Seelio’s August beta launch to the student and business community, the platform has seen a rapid adoption of profiles developed for both job seekers and recruiting companies. Among those looking for quality candidates is Facebook, which has enlisted Seelio to hire top engineering talent.

“There is always more to a candidate than just a resume,” said Will Barnett, university recruiter for Facebook. “Writing a great resume is an entirely different skillset from what we’re actually looking for.  Any ability to learn who a candidate is, beyond just his or her resume and degree, is critical to finding the best engineers.”

Recruiters can register for free to post job openings and uncover their newest company rock star. Students can sign up with their university-provided .edu email addresses.
