Now that the semester is winding down it is important that we shift our focus in order to maximize what we have all accomplished over the past four months. E-Portfolios are an important part of applying for a job. A good e-portfolio contains multiple examples of experiences that show off skills that prospective employers are looking for. This article explains how utilizing an e-portfolio can be beneficial:
Reflection is an important part of the learning process. We have experienced stressful project deadlines, delivered a group presentation proposal, and authored a public relations blog website all semester. Incorporating these events into our e-portfolios will be an important part of our post college success. Reflection offers a time to learn from our experiences in order to improve our professional careers.
When showcasing these experiences in our e-portfolio it is important to remember the skills we developed. The best e-portfolio will not save anyone in a job interview if they cannot show how it translates to the skills needed to perform the job that they applied for.
I hope this post inspires anyone who has not started an e-portfolio to do so. It has been a great semester everyone! Thanks for reading.
