Win An Amazon Shopping Spree From Protuo in Contest of Most Creative Digital Career Portfolios

ATLANTA--(Collegiate Presswire - January 9, 2007) -, the new Web-based career portfolio management service, is offering shopping sprees to those who join Protuo and employ its easy-to-use templates to produce and submit the three digital career portfolios judged as the most creative and effective. The top winners -- selected by Protuo's senior staff -- will receive Amazon gift certificates worth $1000, $500 and $250 dollars and their digital portfolios will be prominently featured as exemplars on Protuo's homepage. All Protuo's features are free for job seekers until March 30th, 2007 when the contest ends.

The increasingly essential online portfolios offer an advantage over standard two-page resumes because they enable job applicants to "show" recruiters and human resource executives their talents, experience and qualifications rather than "tell" them. In just minutes, Protuo members can design and assemble impressive digital portfolios that may include such illustrative items as letters of commendation, performance evaluations, certificates, pictures, recorded speeches and even video clips. The content of a Protuo-created portfolio is limited only by the imagination and resourcefulness of its creator.

Protuo members also benefit by completing a survey that defines their ideal job and employer. Developed in collaboration with human resource experts, the survey, similar to those used by social networking Web sites such as, is evaluated in real-time using a weighted average that compares a job seeker's qualifications to the specific requirements of recruiters and corporate personnel offices. The results are instantly communicated to both parties. Additionally, Protuo career portfolios are automatically posted on 270 job boards including Monster, CareerBuilder and HotJobs among others.

At this time Protuo is free for job seekers until March 30th, 2007. Normally, becoming a Protuo member entails a onetime set-up charge of $9.99 and a monthly fee of $4.99. For more information, visit, or contact Protuo customer service at 888-PROTUO2.
