Design and navigate your experience at FSU with custom, stackable pathways. Display and demonstrate the skills you have to potential employers. ProfessioNole Pathways powered by Folio is your roadmap for acquiring new skills and competencies. With ProfessioNole Pathways, you can see both big-picture objectives and real-time progress as you earn badges to display your work and accomplishments. As you hit milestones along a ProfessioNole Pathway, the badges you earn are auto deposited into your Folio, immediately providing proof of your accomplishments, and demonstrating your ProfessioNole Competencies.

CREATE A PATHWAY OR BADGE OPTION WITH THE FSU CAREER CENTER:
Pathways are learning outlines you can create for students to guide them through defined curricular and co-curricular activities to demonstrate their ProfessioNole Competencies. Pathways are made of milestones and requirements, which are activities designed for students to provide evidence of competencies. Work is reviewed and evaluated based on a strategy defined by the coordinator.
All the work students submit for the pathway, and badges they receive upon completion, are added to their Folio. A student can decide what work they publish, and what they keep private.
Engage with students in a new way! Work with the FSU Career Center and FSU Faculty and Staff to develop Pathways and Badging options for students. Also search talent at FSU through TalentMatch (Coming Summer 2020)
