Your ePassport to Success

Put down the fancy paper, walk out of the Staples, and head to a research prep series session on creating your very own ePortfolio to bring your research to life.

Resume, schmesume. We have three words for you: Portable. Professional. Personal. Forget trying to cram in all of your work and research 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, your education, your research, 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, network with others, and people can even post letters of recommendation for you to show prospective employers. The possibilities are endless!

That’s why the next session in the Undergraduate Research Preparation Series is focused on Creating ePortfolios to Showcase Research, where you’ll learn all about ePortfolios, including how to structure yours to best display your work and research process, as well as incorporate it into applications for internships, jobs, and graduate school.
