Portfolio Development

We’ve all heard the saying, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. A professional portfolio provides the opportunity to ‘show off’ your skills and accomplishments in a concrete manner and it brings life to the resume and the interview. Portfolios are often laid out in a notebook fashion with dividers separating categories. For instance, you may divide it into segments containing your resume, copy of your transcripts for all institutions attended, samples of your work, awards and honors, workshops/conferences attended, military record and references.

The sooner you start preparing your professional portfolio the better, as it is a living document that grows as you grow in your chosen career. Check out what we mean by a ‘professional portfolio’ by clicking on to the following selected sites on Portfolio Development:
