"A resume states your ability, but a portfolio proves it," said Keenan Hogg, Protuo's president and CEO. "Protuo provides students a unique opportunity to stand out in a vast ocean of two-page resumes. Digital portfolios enable young people to take control of their own destinies and define themselves to the professional world that awaits them.

"Our customers, using Protuo Wizard templates, can quickly design, assemble and maintain an impressive and graphically striking digital portfolio to which they can upload photos, awards, recorded presentations, video clips, recommendation letters, performance evaluations and other materials that vividly illustrate their skills, qualifications and experience."

Protuo offers students more than just a simplification of the digital portfolio creation process. Protuo customers complete a survey that helps match their education, experience and career goals to existing job opportunities. Using a methodology similar to that employed by social networking sites such as, the surveys are evaluated in real-time and results sent immediately to job seekers and employers. Protuo career portfolios are automatically posted on 270 job boards including Monster, CareerBuilder and HotJobs among others.

Subsequent communications are provided through a private Internet address and, upon receiving a secured password from the Protuo customer, the digital portfolio can be immediately accessed by the prospective employer. Job interviews with potential employers and recruiters can be easily arranged or conducted using Protuo's built-in networking and communications features such as Instant Messaging and Skype.

Protuo is offering its services free to young professionals and students until the beginning of 2007. Thereafter, a set-up charge of $9.99 and a monthly fee of $4.99 will prevail. For more information, visit, or contact Protuo's customer service at 888.Protuo2.
