Week 5 Discussion Board Original Post
To be honest, I have never had an interest in creating a professional portfolio before reviewing this material. I thought this was something only actors and models did to showcase their headshots. I had never heard of a Curriculum Vitae. I had a fancy resume with my information types on it, I had even gone as far as had it printed on the extensive paper. Without having completed a portfolio, I understand why I was not selected for some positions I applied for.
I believe I first need to start with writing my Curriculum Vitae, as it states on the Walden Writing Centers Guide, curtail your Curriculum Vitae guide to the position you are applying for. This would go for your entire portfolio. I think the mean of it stays the same, but some minor adjustments to fit the position would be needed, highlight academic and accomplishments that relate to that area vs. another. Updated your resume is critical, including writing a specific job-related summary, I do not currently have an overview of my resume. Reviewing the articles on Professional Portfolios, my understanding is they are to display your progression and accomplishments along with your advancements and career path. It is to be a paper interview. I believe you have a few options to include academic activities and achievements. A person can list them in the Curriculum Vitae, which seems straight forward. Another option is they can be displayed by awards in a subcategory. A person can create an e-portfolio or a paper portfolio depending on the situation. There are so many options, by being creative, you show some of your personality through your individual collection.
