As more people are connected to one another via social media, it is important to build a positive social media portfolio. Unfortunately, these social media platforms are not designed or tailored to build a positive social portfolio. Therefore, Geazle STEM Network provides a platform to build a positive social portfolio in STEM.

A positive portfolio is a collection of the activities on Geazle; these include quotes, images, audio, blogs, articles, documents anything really, all designed to enhance some sort of positive state. A positive social portfolio is a measurement of who you are as an individual. Seeing someone's activity gives a true insight into who he/she is and what he/she does. A social portfolio curates most of everything that has been created and shared on Geazle. The question may be why considering a positive STEM portfolio. The answers are not always clear; however, a portfolio offers a chance for others to see what you have been doing in your field, or major. The social portfolio also can reveal strengths, accomplishments, and mastery of the major goals and learning outcomes that structure you. Moreover, the portfolio gives you a compilation of your posts to showcase to potential employers, school applications and so on. Having a social portfolio is openly discussed and each year many organizations are looking into this new trend.

Companies are rethinking their hiring approach; otherwise, they will forever lose their competitive edge in the race to grow in a very complex global landscape. Competition is higher more than ever before. A lack of great talent is turning out to be the greatest challenge many organizations will face. In a strong competitive global market, it deems necessary for organizations to have the right talent in the right place. Currently, many organizations require employment seekers to provide links, websites of their publications. They want to know what a potential candidate has been doing as far as his/her field of study is concerned or simply staying current with the diffusion of information. In this digital age, it is not surprising there is such a request. Many organizations realize that having a great Curriculum Vitae, conducting a good interview are not sufficient. Currently, many who are employed are significantly incompetent to complete their tasks. This incompetency stems on their curriculum vitae (CV). In addition, many potential candidates embellish their CV to appear much more qualified than they actually are. 

Therefore, the time has come to start building a positive social portfolio on a STEM Network like Geazle.  Social media positive portfolio is going to be the buzz word as to what a potential employee has been doing over the course of his/her career. Beside the Curriculum Vitae, potential employees will have to provide proof of writing articles, blog post, and writing documents in their respective field or any other field or interest. Having all that employers will have a better assessment about their employees. A predictive workforce can be determined; employers can forecast potential shortages or surpluses of talent. After all, “Geazle’s mission is on diffusing STEM knowledge, discussing methodologies, promoting the exchange of experience and disseminating good practices in these disciplines as well as producing and promoting creativity and innovation”. 

Geazle.com is a platform that connects scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEMers). In addition, Geazle is open to everyone that is curious about STEM.
