Portfolio Power

About Job Portfolios

Job portfolios are not reserved only for creative workers to showcase their work; it's a powerful interviewing tool for many careers. A job portfolio supplements your resume and presents tangible proof of your skills and abilities. Seeing is believing!

During your career, if you have written, developed, created or earned anything that you can file, print, frame, photocopy, photograph or digitize, then you have the stuff of which job portfolios are made. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Articles
  • Awards
  • Brochures
  • Transcripts and degrees
  • Drawings and designs
  • Grants
  • Flyers
  • Manuals and handbooks
  • Merit reviews
  • Photographs
  • Presentations
  • Product support plans
  • Tech bulletins
  • Programming examples
  • Proposals
  • Scholarships
  • Training certificates
  • Videos
  • Recommendation letters
  • Reference letters

Consider creating a Web-based version of your resume, with links to your digitized portfolio. It's an excellent way to impress potential employers, display your work, and put the Internet to work for you. But even if you have a Web resume, it's still a good idea to hand carry your portfolio to interviews.

Compile and organize your portfolio as you complete projects and earn recognition, so you don't overlook anything. Collecting all along allows you to quickly replace old stuff with new, and choose what to include for specific job interviews.

It's not a good idea to wait until the day you quit your job, before compiling your portfolio. You won't have time if you are escorted out the door, shortly after you submit your resignation letter. (It happens.) Your soon-to-be ex-employer might stand over you as you gather items from your office or worse, search your briefcase as you leave.

So it's a better idea to plan to quit your job in advance, and you never know when you might get laid off or fired. It doesn't look too good to take company property, especially on your last day.
