You can watch this 3-minute video here or follow the steps listed below.
Creating your Professional Story on Cirkled In
So let’s get started. If you do not have an account already, you can create one for free at www.cirkledin.com.
Carousel of Images: Say More with Less
On top of your profile is a carousel of images, where a picture is worth 1000 words. This is the easiest way for you to say more with less. By uploading images that showcase your talents, such as playing a sport, or musical instrument, or volunteering in your local community, you can make a lasting impression on anyone who views your profile. Check out our FAQ video on how to upload your files.
Steps: If you click on the “+” button, you can select a file from your computer or OneDrive, upload it, and add as many as 30 images to showcase yourself in action.
Profile Picture: Putting a Face to Your Name
Your profile picture is the first thing people see when they visit your profile, and it represents who you are. We recommend choosing a picture that shows your upper body or a full-size image for now.
Steps: Click on the pencil button on the profile picture on the top left side and upload a picture of your own.
Who am I: Telling the World About You
In the “Who am I” section, we encourage you to tell the world about yourself. Share your grade level, school, and any academic achievements or extracurricular activities you’re involved in. You can also mention any passions or interests that make you unique and authentic, like playing video games or participating in chess tournaments.
Hobbies: Sharing Your Interests and Passions
The “Hobbies” section is your opportunity to share your interests and passions. Whether it’s watching TV, playing video games, or playing volleyball with friends, we believe that everyone has at least a couple of things they love doing. This is a free text section, which means you get to tell the world who you are in your own words.
Something I’m Proud Of: Sharing Your Achievements
Finally, the “Something I’m Proud Of” section is an opportunity for you to share a recent accomplishment or achievement that you’re proud of. We encourage you to share even the smallest of accomplishments, like helping someone at a store or winning a math competition. By sharing your achievements, you inspire others to reach their own goals.
Steps: Click on the pencil and add information on who you are.
