Your ePortfolio is a website that effectively communicates your work and skills as they relate to your post-graduation goals. It’s an ideal tool to use as you are seeking internships, scholarships, jobs, and/or admission to grad school. A strong ePortfolio immediately sets you apart from other students, which is one reason it is part of your Distinguished Communicator certification. Whether your ePortfolio currently consists of a blank page or you are close to a final draft, this workshop is for you! We’ll review the basics of good portfolios and work with you to do some hands-on building/editing, so join us!
