"We have been hiring at a rapid pace," says Emily Keller-Logan, director of marketing & communications for Seelio
. "We have brought on a lot of talented people."

"We're providing student lifecycle portfolios to institutions so that students can begin preparing for their careers from orientation to graduation," Keller-Logan says.
