The Electronic Portfolio

Showcase Your Skills with Experience Portfolio

Getting in front of employers and expressing how valuable you are on just a piece of paper is a challenge, no matter what career you're planning to pursue after college. There's so much more to showcasing your skills, talents and experiences.

Through our partner Experience, Salisbury University is pleased to introduce the Experience Portfolio. The Portfolio provides a way for you to go beyond your resume to recount personal experiences, define accomplishments and upload files and work samples that demonstrate the qualities and skills that a standard resume just can't. Here's your opportunity to let your true personality shine.

There are a multitude of benefits for any type of student, of any major. For juniors and seniors, this is a great and easy way to compile all of your information and keep track of it as you really begin the job search process.  As a freshman or a sophomore you can start gathering all of your unique experiences early so that when the time comes to begin preparing for life after college, you're two steps ahead of everybody else.

Do this first.  Build your entire portfolio before you publish it or share it with anyone. You can share your Portfolio with your career center,  mentors, professors and potential employers. In your portfolio, you'll find 4 main components - Profile, Resume, Experiences and References.
Notes:
x=closed section
-=open section

- Profile: create your Introduction and list your contact information (home contact information, campus contact information, work, etc.) and career interests (type of job, location, full-time/part-time, willingness to travel, desired job types, etc.) here.

- Resume: The first resume that is your primary resume is an html resume and it is searchable by whomever you select. It incorporates your work history, education, organizations, skills, and certifications.  There is an html resume that you can build it will automatically take the information you place in the categories and turn it into a very nice pdf file) or you can upload one or more from your personal file.  You must publish it before it is viewable by anyone. 
*To view your resume you can click on "Edit" after clicking on the Resume Index.  Close out the edit and the file will appear.  Also you could view your resume by creating a "Shared View"  with someone or even yourself and you will be able to see the resume you have selected to view with them. 

- Experiences: Talk about internships, expand on items in your resume and other notable things you've done that really shows off your talents and your personality.  You can choose to upload an attachment.  You can view that attachment from the main screen of this section.  You can view the entries that are not attachments by clicking on the cross-hair icon.

- References: have your references ready should an employer ask for them.  Select a variety of references and post their contact information so you can include them in your shared views.

Keys:
-Complete all sections of your portfolio
-Create "Shared Views" with the person or employers of your choice
-Select what parts of your portfolio you want to share with that person.  Go through each section.
-"Share" that information with that "Shared View" person.  (email, #days to be active, etc.requested)

Preparing for your career is hard but exciting work, so the more tools you have at your disposal the better. We encourage you to get started in creating a Portfolio so you can manage your job search process with ease and connect with the right employer for you!

Since I value your opinion, I'd love it if you'd take a look at my Career Portfolio that I've linked to below. It's a comprehensive tool that I will eventually send out to employers to help illustrate both my intangible qualities in the Experiences section and my skills and interests in the Resume section. I'd love your feedback after you review it. Thanks for your time.
