10 Ways To Use Your Portfolio

Since a portfolio should offer evidence of your experience, capability and skill, its use is not limited to a job search. Brainstorm other times when you could use your portfolio to communicate your skills, talents and accomplishments. Two ideas have been listed to get you started. Check your list with the ideas you’ll find as you continue with the exercises in this book.

  1. Use it to show what you love to do.

    By keeping a spotlight on accomplishments that bring you personal satisfaction, you can put your best foot forward. Talking about the things you value brings a smile to your face and excitement to your voice.

  2. Use it in your interview to emphasize your strong points.

    By talking about work products and outcomes, you can stay focused on your strengths and skills.
