How do I add work experience to my profile?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I add work experience to my profile?

Your Canvas Student ePortfolios profile is a great place to showcase your current and previous work experiences. As you enter your work experiences you will have the chance to attach projects you completed and tag teammates you have worked with.

Add Position Information

Add Position Information

In the New Work Experience tray, enter the name of the company you worked for [1], your position or role [2], and a description of the position [3].

Add Position Dates

Add Position Dates

Use the Start Date drop-down menus [1] to indicate the date you started the position. If you are entering a previous work experience, use the End Date drop-down menus [2] to indicate the date you left the position.

If the position is your current position, select the Current position toggle [3]. If the Current position toggle is enabled, Canvas Student ePortfolios will leave the end dates blank, indicating this is your currently held position.

To save the work experience, click the Save Changes button [4].

Note: The display order of your entries is determined by the end date of each entry in reverse chronological order. If two entries have the same end date, those items will be arranged alphabetically.
