How I Use It
As a high-school level Career Development Program Manager and Career Direction Teacher, I use Cirkled In with my students as they begin to develop and/or enhance their resumes and cover letters. The platform provides excellent prompts that my students can follow as they think about and document their achievements in a more organized fashion.
The platform is another resource, beyond what they get in the classroom, and it has helped give my students more confidence as they think about what is next for them, and how best to showcase their accomplishments and goals. When students are encouraged to think about and document how many great things they have already completed, I see behaviors improving and confidence growing.
Cirkled In is intuitive and user-friendly for my students and me, which is also a benefit. I especially like how the platform breaks things down into small, focused topics, especially since students are living such busy lives. They can complete one section at a time and it’s not long until they have a complete profile they can use to ‘market’ themselves and show how they have grown year-by-year.
Many of my students will go on to post-high-school education and using the college database in Cirkled In makes it easy to explore potential schools and determine where they want to apply.
In my role, it is exciting to track the success of my students after graduation. Using this platform, I can determine what worked best for students, and help others leverage that same successful ‘formula’.
Lastly, I cannot stress enough how helpful the FAQ section has been for all of us. There are several videos on a variety of topics. And, if there is still a question, I know I can simply email the Cirkled In team and they will be very responsive.
I actually consider the Cirkled In platform a partner, a great partner.
