Building a Student Profile

Providing the required contact information and saying something about yourself is essential. You should also change your profile picture (avatar) and the background image that will appear on your profile page. This will help personalize your presence in Tethys and make it easier for people to recognize various entries you make in the Tethys community. From there, build up your participation just like you would on any other social network. You can add feeds to your wall, share pictures, videos, etc….but remember that this is not Facebook, it is a professional network designed to help you engage with businesses, build a reputation and get to work. The following step by step instruction will provide more details.

Once you have reach the end of the registration process, you will be able to log in back into Tethys Engineering by selecting the menu pick "My Tethys" or "Sign in". There you will be able to take advantage of the many social collaboration features offered by the platform.

To navigate to your profile, select the "Profile" menu pick on the second menu bar. It will bring you to your main profile page which is the way others see you. This is your own space where, very much like Facebook or LinkedIn, you can make your self stand out and communicate with others about what you are doing. The "About me" section is important but as you will see there are many other ways to create an identity for yourself.

There are two main menu items that will provide you ways to modify your profile. The first one is on the upper right corner of your main profile page. When clicking the "gear like setting" you will be able to select multiple options to change the overall look and feel as well as the preference of your profile. Note that this includes email notifications and privacy settings. As a first step, you may want to change your picture (Avatar) and make it personal. Show who you are and remember this is a professional network... you can also change the cover picture of your profile and give you the opportunity to make a statement. Make sure the size of the picture you select fits the space provided otherwise it risks to hide some menu items which will make it impossible for your and others to navigate around your profile (the image size should be 1200x450).

As mentioned previously the second menu item you can use to modify your profile is "Profile" in the second menu bar next to the "Home symbol". There you will be able to essentially change or adjust everything that is changeable. Note that it is important that you look at your preferences and privacy setting. These will define what others can see and how you will be notified of changes that take place in your network.

This constitute only the first step of developing a presence on Tethys Engineering. Please refer to the section on Building your Reputation for more advanced features and capabilities available to you.
