Career Development and Electronic PortfolioView Full Description

Electronic Portfolios can assist with showcasing skills and experiences. Go to the Portfolium website and watch the video there.


Learning Objectives:
Create a webpage for advertising possible services.
Design and develop a functional or chronological resume, along with an appropriate cover letter
to be sent to potential employers.

What is a portfolio or electronic portfolio?
How can an electronic portfolio or eportfolio be used to showcase your skills and experiences?
Conduct a little research on eportfolios and discuss the difference between simply applying for a new employment position and taking the time to showcase one’s many accomplishments and skills. Explain.

Your response must be in your own words. Your initial post should be 275 word minimum that reflects research and not opinion. Provide citations for the source of your learning.

In order to earn full points, one must respond to the forum question by Day 3, and to at least two other classmates’ responses with 150 word minimum posts that add value to the discussion and allow for time for interaction. In other words, waiting until 11 pm Sunday night to respond to others does not support the intent of a discussion and will not earn full points. The point to a discussion is to learn from each other, test ideas, share insights and engage in two-way dialog.
