This activity may be self-explanatory but I find it pertinent to my growth as an MIS student. Each student in the MIS program at Temple has the opportunity to create what is called an E-Portfolio, it is what you are reading this post on. Similar to LinkedIn, it allows students to create a profile about themselves to display their professional achievements and post about their experiences.
I found this activity helpful because it forced me to think about what I have done as a student so far, where I have succeeded and where I need to grow. This is interesting to an MIS professional because it gives them a more personalized view of each student and allows them to see how dedicated students are in promoting their personal brand. Through this activity, I have learned how to promote myself on a professional platform.
