Student & Alumni users: Setting up your profile

Congrats! You've set up your account - next, let's set up your Student Profile.

Setting up your student profile helps the career advising team get to know you and understand your job search preferences so that they can assist you in finding the right opportunities. A complete profile will help the career services team reach out to you if there are job or internship opportunities, interviews, events that match your background, preferences, and skillset. Use this article as a step-by-step guide for setting up a student profile.


Step One: Once logged in, head over to the profile tab from the left side navigation bar



Step Two: Upload a professional headshot by selecting the grey “Click to add image” box to upload your photo



Having trouble? The image should be at least 150x150 pixels.


Step 3: Update your Headline

  • Your 12Twenty headline is visible to fellow students & alumni (and soon to employers)

  • Let everyone get to know you and create opportunities by sharing what you are seeking for your next career move!

  • ProTip: To view what other students, alumni, and employers see, simply click “Public View”


Step 4: Complete your “Background” tab

  • This information will help the career services office get to know YOU better and assist you in finding the right job and networking opportunities.

  • Some of these fields are searchable via the “Candidate Search” functionality that allows employers and school admins to create dynamic resume books based on your skills.

    • Once you find a job, you will no longer appear in the Employer Candidate Search.

  • If your school has the “Student and Alumni Networking” Module you can also opt in to allow your peers (students and alumni) to find you in the Student and Alumni Directory based on these fields.

  • Note: You can opt out of both anytime by updating your Account Settings.

  • Once you click on the pencil icon next to each section on the background tab, a new pop-up will appear.



Step 5: Click the “Update” button to save your changes. 

Your newly created profile is ready to go!


Step 6: Keep your Career “Preferences” section updated 


To stay informed with the latest career resources, events, jobs, and interviews that match your unique preferences, please make sure to frequently update the “Preference” section of your profile with industries, functions, practice areas, and geographic locations you are excited about.
