Why should I create a portfolio?

Portfolios provide you the opportunity to showcase your strengths, skills, and passion in a way that helps you stand out in the job and academic market.

There are many experiences and knowledge gained throughout your college experience, and building a portfolio allows you to highlight the skills gathered from milestones, assignments, and important components that prepare you for your future.

Not only will you learn how to talk about your accomplishments, but you will also have evidence to support them. 

What is a portfolio?

A portfolio is a combination of your accomplishments, work completed, and skills learned throughout your college career. It is made up of assignments, projects completed, job experiences, and other components that will translate directly into a strong resume.
