Last year, the CHSS web designers added functionality to all academic departmental websites and, as some of you know, we now we have the ability to include profiles for all of our doctoral students. These profile pages look similar to the faculty/staff profiles on the website and you will be able to create and edit the content, attach a CV, and post a photo of yourself. We believe the addition of online profiles will be useful to you when you apply for jobs or fellowships and as a way to share your research with a wider audience. We also look forward to sharing this information with prospective students who are curious to know about our current student activities.
If you’re interested in posting a profile, please follow these steps to access the appropriate webpage to help you create it:
As far as content goes, there are quite a few fields available that you are welcome and encouraged to fill out, but in order to maintain a cohesive look, the college says it would be ideal if at the minimum each student added a professional-looking photo, their research interests and a few words for their main profile.
Please keep in mind that you are not required to have a profile online. Also, if you do set one up, you should try to update it at least once a year to make sure it contains current information.
Thanks very much,
