Personal Page presentation at InHolland University

The Inholland University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam invited ZEEF to give both presentations and workshops about Personal Pages.

The Personal Page feature at ZEEF.com is interesting for Bachelor Degree students to use as a tool in order to build their online presence and profile themselves online.

Personal Page Presentation

The system of ZEEF; creating, adding and categorizing links enables the students to communicate in an innovative and creative way and helps them to differentiate from other students during job interviews for their internships. You can easily create link blocks like: education, work experience, languages etc. ZEEF allows you to create one clear overview of your expertise. ZEEF will count each click for you so you will be able to determine which links are most important.

Personal Page used as a tool to optimize chances in career

Internship coordinators of the faculties International Business Innovation, International Communication Management and Facility Management are enthusiastic about the feature because it helps students to not only build their personal social profile but also to curate and monitor the other social networks. The option to import your existing social profiles (like; LinkedIn, About.me, Twitter etc.) will help students stay organised and up to date.

We think ZEEF is a possible future way of working because of the ability to add any public link. It enables the students to add any videos, documents, websites which are beneficial for their reputation. The faculty Facility Management also invited ZEEF to present to graduated Bachelor Degree students in order to motivate them to profile themselves online and increase the chance of selection.

I think it enables the students to present their skills in different ways than they are used to, this helps them to differentiate from other students. During the class ‘How to find an internship’ we introduce ZEEF in order to increase the chance on selection regarding their internship processes.

What I like about ZEEF is that it’s also a way to bookmark your interests and existing social profiles. Students often maintain various personal social networks already, the Personal Page enables them to combine the profiles with skills transferred into links so it can be different types of material like; video, documents, pictures, links etc.

Optimize your chance on Internships and Jobs

For me it was really difficult to find an interesting internship. During my search, I noticed that not only students had trouble finding interns, but companies also seemed to be having difficulties finding the right interns. The usual way of applying for an internship or job used to be a resume and a sign up at LinkedIn. ZEEF allowed me to create a Personal Page and helped me to build a professional resume at ChristinaButerLozano.ZEEF.com.

As an International Communication Management student, I am working hard to create a successful future for myself. Living in the Netherlands, it’s hard to stand out of the crowd with only a degree. You need the right skills, experience and USPs. I found it hard to prove my skills, qualities and competences. I know what to say and how to come across professionally during job interviews, but how would the interviewer know if what I was saying was true? Just a piece of paper and what I was saying were not enough, how could I really stand out from the other students?

Recruitment internship jobsInitially, LinkedIn helped me because I could add skills and projects and people could endorse me. The problem is, every LinkedIn member has both skills and endorsements listed on their profile.

I didn’t feel like it was striking enough as everyone can just fill in the same pre-defined sections! At ZEEF.com I had the option to create a subject about myself: Christina Buter Lozano. I could add as many link blocks and links as I wanted on any subject I wanted.
After a few minutes of brainstorming I quickly added the following link blocks: About, Work experience, Education. I would have loved to have been able to add all this information to my LinkedIn profile but I couldn’t as LinkedIn limits you to a number of pre-defined categories. As I finished the categories I could copy and paste the URLS in the blocks. Linking to my information means that anybody can easily view and verify it. I also added links to my general resume and LinkedIn profile.

You know why? Because I can also add personal sections  to my personal page. The first thing ZEEF is asking you, is to link your LinkedIn.
I can now show my Personal Page, which contains all the needed qualitative info about me and my career. It’s a nice, clear and professional site map about me as a professional. Check it out yourself: ChristinaButerLozano.ZEEF.com.

Benefits

  • It’s better than LinkedIn because I can add as many sections as I want.
  • It’s better than my Curriculum Vitae because it’s clickable, so it contains more information and is easier to verify.
  • I can add all my work, certificates, diplomas, research, company pitches and everything else on one single page and to create a clear and strong professional overview to attract companies and get a nice job.

After publishing the page I felt like all my qualities and skills were communicated in a more professional and innovative way, ready for a successful future. Every positive related professional aspect of me was added to this personal profile, I got the feeling I did everything to show the best of me. Of course I’ll keep LinkedIn, it’s viewable in the social networks at my personal page. Everything you need is included!
