Introduction

Choose Portfolio Sections

There are different ways that you can organize your portfolio and various sections that you can include when developing your content. Consider your target market and the content your audience would want to see. Here are some sections you should consider including in your portfolio:

  • Title Page: You should include a cover page that indicates your name and a title (Job Search Portfolio or Career Portfolio)
  • Table of Contents: List all of the sections of your portfolio with hyperlinks to allow you and the person viewing your portfolio to quickly access the relevant information.
  • Profile: Consider writing a short biography, a mission statement explaining who you are, or a professional philosophy about your vision of the future in this industry.
  • Career Goals, Professional Development Plan: Include 3-5 career-focused professional goals. Be as specific as possible.
  • Resume, Cover Letter: Include copies of your most up-to-date documents
  • Education, Certificates, Training or Professional Development Documents
  • Community Service or Volunteer Experience
  • Licenses, Memberships, Transcripts, Scholarships
  • References

For the portfolio example, the sections included are Certifications, Goal, Experience, Projects and/or Competitions and Contact information. As you go through the different sections of the portfolio reflect on how the student’s brand is demonstrated and consider what photos, projects, experiences and qualifications you could add to your own portfolio to accurately reflect your own personal brand and story. The items you select should be tailored to the industry or job that you are applying or interviewing for.
