Using ePortfolio as a Personal Marketing Tool
The use of ePortfolio as both process and product help to connect the learning experiences of the classroom, workplace, and community.
Your ePortfolio can essentially serve as an interactive resumé. By selecting your best work accomplished during your time at BU, potential employers can easily see what you can contribute. Simply put the URL of your publicly accessible ePortfolio on your paper resumé, homepage, or social media site, or Tweet it to your followers. Display your presentations, link to writing samples or lesson plans, showcase your art and design work, and display your co-curricular-, volunteer-, internship-, or research-related activities. We invite you to see our gallery of BU student portfolios that showcase the diversity of our BU graduates and professional learning community. Applying to jobs can be nerve-racking, and there’s only so much you can do to present yourself well and accurately. Using an ePortfolio helps potential employers to gain a better understanding of your work and your identity, in a way that you can fully control.
