Merit @ Parkland: Build Your Personal Brand

Do you plan to make the dean’s list, win an award or scholarship, attend a conference, complete a volunteer project, or earn a certificate at Parkland this fall? We don’t just want to hear about your success, we want to tell others about it, too!

Merit3Parkland can publicize your student accomplishments through a program called Merit. This software creates a free, personalized achievement profile on the Web for every student at the college who claims their page. Parkland faculty, staff, and campus group leaders send achievement stories to Marketing for use on our collegewide Merit page, and any students named in those achievements get recognition on their personal pages, with the stories sent to their hometown newspapers.

You can share your Merit stories on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, so that family and friends can cheer you on.

Merit2PLUS,  you can customize your Merit page by adding a photo, a few details about yourself, your work experience, and your campus activities. Your page is a great way to build your personal brand; use it to make an impression on future college recruiters and for scholarships and jobs.

Ready to claim your personal Merit page? Click here for details…and then get ready to shine this fall! 🙂
