A professional portfolio is an organized collection of important documents that record and highlight your talents, skills, and education, and chronicles your professional path.
In addition to your resume, cover letter, and reference letters, a professional portfolio should also contain examples of projects, reports, articles, certificates, awards, publications, and other items that are integral to your career foundation.
A professional portfolio is an important part of a long-term career strategy. Creating and updating a portfolio requires an assessment and evaluation of your work history, professional aptitude, and accomplishments. A professional portfolio is a fundamental component of a polished professional image that will allow you to stand out on job interviews and meetings with supervisors, potential employers, and recruiters. It provides proof or examples of your work to others while also allowing you to remember forgotten achievements or recognize under-utilized competencies.
A professional portfolio is uniquely you. No one has the exact same skills, education, or employment history that you have. It allows you to focus on yourself as a complete individual, not just as an employee. This process of self-evaluation leads to greater self-awareness. Self-awareness leads to personal and professional clarity. Clarity can uncover the desire to stay the course, the option to carve out a new path, and any areas for growth. Clarity is the starting point for success.
A well-planned professional portfolio is completed through organization, attention to detail, and focused decision making. Investing time in portfolio development allows you to define success on your own terms, establish a clear career road map, and take strategic action to GET PROMOTED to the job of your dreams. A professional portfolio is a living product that is best reviewed and/or updated quarterly.
