Monterey Peninsula recently began offering its students access to the Portfolium platform, a digital portfolio and career preparation network. The college provides both students and alumni access to Portfolium, in which users can develop visual records of their academic and professional achievements by uploading work samples such as presentations, photos, videos, and papers. In addition to their academic projects, students can incorporate information on internships and extracurricular and volunteer activities to provide a holistic picture of their college experience.

Portfolium also gives students valuable exposure to hiring managers at companies such as Google and Boeing. With free access, students can continue to update their profiles after graduation to reflect their academic and professional achievements.
