Student Professional Profiles

Objective

Without a traditional educational degree, the student profiles serve as a credible testimonial of a student's abilities through skill mastery and project experience. Many Udacity students take our programs to transition to a new career or get promoted within their current company. 300+ employers use the Udacity Talent Source app to search through top student profiles to find their next great hire.
