Additionally, if you speak multiple languages you can display that in this section.
Achievements & Activities
Tell your STEM story in the achievements and activities sections. These fields allow you to detail your involvement and explain exactly how you’ve made an impact. Everything including academic awards, sports accolades, community service, leadership positions, certifications, work experience and more will help you separate yourself from the competition.

As the need for career-ready talent increases, your profile will help put you in position to compete for the top technical jobs and opportunities available.
Highlight your technical ability and academic performance by showcasing your ACT WorkKeys scores, NOCTI scores, areas of interest and more. Businesses that are seeking an individual with a technical career path will notice that you have been applying yourself in these areas.
Don’t just share your technical experience in your profile; show it in the video section! Showcase your technical skills and expertise through a video that would be seen by businesses and colleges.
As a technical student, certifications and licensures play an important role in the development of your skills and abilities. You can display these earned credentials on your profile and show interested businesses that you are career-ready with certified skills and knowledge to do the job.
Your profile is the best way to share all your relevant experience, internships, apprenticeships, work history and extracurricular participation in the technical fields. Your information will be used by colleges and businesses to find whether or not your experiences are a match to their available opportunities.
With STEM Premier you can safely and securely store and organize documents important to your career portfolio. Resumes, portfolios, recommendation letters, transcripts and certificates will be at your fingertips whenever you need them.
