Preparing your spikeview profile for Summer Internships, Private School Applications, or College!

January 20, 2015

Dear Middle and High-school Students,

As you make your way towards college and the working world, curating your online presence into a profile that is desirable and authentically showcases how you are unique is more important than ever. It is also equally important that your data remains private and only accessible to those you choose to share it with.

Using a powerful tool like spikeview that enables you to privately tell the story of your life and personal growth, with meaningful photos, videos and content that reflects your interests and your unique journey is key to creating a compelling narrative. Having the flexibility to customize the views of your data and share only the relevant aspects for the opportunity you are pursuing is equally important.

spikeview – What is it?

A student portfolio platform with data privacy as a core tenet, spikeview allows for easy organization of a digital portfolio, organizing a wide range of experiences and achievements to illustrate a student’s unique interests and goals. The profile is private, and the data can only be accessed if shared by the student or their parent. spikeview also offers the ability to discover unique college programs, internships, and experiences that align with a student’s interests. Students can build, maintain, and nurture an active network of teammates, advisors, and mentors as they move from one activity to another. They can create group and online communities and take on leadership roles in them. Once the data is organized, it can be leveraged for your college application process by connecting with colleges so you can learn more about their programs and engage with them to find the best fit for you.

But wait, it does not end there. You can continue to build out your spikeview profile as you move on to college and industry with relevant opportunities and connections as you move through the various phases of your life.

Who is it for?

Middle and High-school students and their parents looking for a platform to organize their data privately and sharing custom views as needed to access scarce and coveted opportunities.

Why use it?

Students need a desirable online presence BEYOND their SOCIAL interactions with friends that more purposefully articulates their experiences and their journey. The spikeview tool also helps students create a roadmap of courses and extracurriculars to consider in middle and high school, simplify engagement with college admissions counselors, get easy access to competitive programs and classes, and have data-driven conversations with parents, educators, and mentors. The tool will also help you get discovered by your dream colleges and universities.

What do I put on it?

Anything that demonstrates your character, passion, experiences, accomplishments, and interests is all fair game to put in your “Story”. Great creative and put as many nice photos and descriptions as you can. NO experience is too big or small to include – from a family cooking memory to international level awards. If in doubt, put it in, you can always filter out content when sharing customized views with others.

Here are some examples of things to put in your profile

You are stuck at home due to COVID-19. Now is a great time to get organized, get ahead, and exploit the available opportunities on the platform to give yourself a well deserved advantage.
