Resume, schmesume. It’s time for you to put down the fancy paper, walk out of the Staples, and head back to your computer to get started on your ePortfolio. Why? Three words: Portable. Professional. Personal. Forget trying to cram in all of your work onto a tiny sheet of paper. It’s a digital world and we are digital boys and girls.
An online collection of all your work, ePortfolios showcase your accomplishments, give you the opportunity to creatively represent yourself and your education, and so much more. You can post your resume, files, images, videos, and blogs that show your success and progress as a student while enriching your learning, preparing you for your field of work, and sharpening your technological skills. You can also include extracurricular activities and student organizations you’re a part of, you can network with others, and people can even post letters of recommendation for you to show prospective employers. The possibilities are endless!
And if that’s not enough, you can win a $100 gift card by entering the Spring ePortfolio Contest open to undergraduate and graduate Pace students. The winner will receive a $100 gift card to Barnes & Noble, and will be recognized at the ePortfolio Student Showcase with an ePortfolio Certificate of Excellence. Submitting is only a click away. Log in to https://eportfolio.pace.edu/ to enter! The deadline is April 9, so act fast!
