Think about ways that you can showcase yourself. How do you stand out from your
peers? Currently, many of your resumes are very similar. What makes you more
desirable to hire than the next person?
While it is appropriate to view others portfolios and gain ideas and valuable incites
in ways to develop your own portfolio. It is NOT appropriate to copy information
that others have created. This is plagiarism. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that
if you have chosen to use the words of others that you make changes to your portfolio
Please take the time to read through the feedback that has been provided based on
your current portfolio. Be sure to make the necessary changes to improve the
quality of what you are showing to the rest of the world. As you think about making
changes put yourself in the shoes of an employer and think about what you would
want to see and read about a possible future employee.
It is time to grab my attention. The challenge is to see which of you can post the
most professional photograph and write a bio that gets me interested in who you
are. Convince me that it is worth looking through the rest of your portfolio 🙂
Information on how to write a short bio is provided on blackboard.
This blog site will help assist in the development of your E-Portfolio. The site will provide a safe environment to post your work- in-progress E-Portfolio and receive helpful feedback for improvement from faculty and peers. Having access to others portfolios will help everyone with development of innovative ideas and hopefully motivate all students to produce E-portfolios of the highest quality. Remember this is your professional digital footprint!
