Your Merit page is a résumé that builds itself — your college creates your page and then updates it with your involvement in key academic and co-curricular programs, showcasing your unique experience in a positive online presence.
When your college updates your Merit page with verified honors and awards, those updates are shared with your friends, family and your community — the people who can help broker connections when they know about your success.
Not only can your college update your Merit page with activities, but so can other organizations you're involved with, like honor societies. You can even add your own activities to your Merit page to demonstrate your campus involvement.
Add your internships, co-ops, or jobs to your Merit page to convey your real-world experience alongside the academic achievements posted to your page by your college. Your entire story comes into focus on your Merit page.
"Most students in this generation have heard of social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. However, there's one unique online network utilized at Champlain College and other universities across the country that is lesser known, but just as valuable — Merit."
Because verified updates to Merit pages can only come from colleges, high schools, employers and organizations that have joined the Merit network, you'll only get a Merit page if you're associated with an organization that's member of the network.
When your Merit page is created for you by one of these organizations, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to sign into your page and customize it.
When you accomplish something notable, your college will update your page with details about your involvement.
Merit also connects these updates to people you care about you — your high school, your community, and your family and friends.
You can sync your page with popular social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn so that updates to your page will reach your contacts in those networks, too.
Your Merit page tells your personal story of success in college, and ensures that people find the "good stuff" about you when they search online — which more than 75 percent of hiring managers do!
Merit brings together the organizations that can help tell your story of success and the people who care about you and want to hear about it. Everyone can know what it means for your to learn, grown and succeed.
