Career Portfolios–Should You Have One?

By having one, you’re providing employers with an in-depth look into your background–helping prove facts stated on your resume.

An online career portfolio can be a “show and tell” by spotlighting what you’ve done, linking to blogs, charts, videos, testimonials, articles, or work samples.

This is also a good place to mention any awards received, brag about your GPA, internship experiences, and volunteer work. Think of a career portfolio as a way to separate yourself from the masses and wow an employer. Constantly update information as you build your career. Show workshops taken, promotions, successes, added responsibilities, etc.
