When starting off with the e-portfolio page, the user must remember the three important things. Those three important things are:
- Who are you?
- Contact Information
Who are you? Remember. Many companies want to know more about you and your career. In fact, users do not have to include their personal life or issues except the information that will guide you to a job or internship. For example, users can introduce themselves starting with their name, major, minor (optional), college level, some highlighted accomplishments, student organization involvement, etc. Finally, this may sound silly but definitely include your picture on the page. This would help increase better opportunity for employers, recruiters, or classmates to know who you are.
Resume: No questions, but resume is the most important highlights of work experiences. For example, every time when you walked into an interview or Spring Connection what kind of question would they ask you? Well if my prediction is correct, they will definitely ask do you have your “resume” with you. So remember, resume has been the most important step to the dream of your job. Furthermore, what if for some reason, you forgot to print your resume? Well you know where you can get it.
Contact Information: Now contact information might not be the most important page than resume. However, it is necessary to include this last important information to the e-portfolio, because you never know who will call or email you. In fact, this can help your friends, classmates, recruiters, or employers to find you. More importantly, their calls might help you to identify what kind of information you should provide or change. So remember, contact information includes your name, email, and cell phone number. Besides, if the user wants to provide more information than just email or cell phone number, then feel free to provide more information that are comfortable with you if necessary.
Personal Interests, Career Goals, Courses, Interests & Hobbies, or Social Networking Sites can be other information that might be important to you.
