Have you heard the phrase “if you stay ready you don’t have to get ready”? Have you missed out on opportunities because you were unprepared or not ready? The last time you applied for a job did you have all your employment documents in one place? Was it smooth sailing the last time you applied to college or a professional membership organization? Did you have all your accomplishments in one place the last time you asked for a raise, signed up to volunteer in your community, or had a meeting with a potential client?
I’m sure that you do many things well. You probably do so many things well that only a few people are aware of all of your talents and skills. I’m also sure that you have had a plethora of professional experiences and cannot name them all right now. It’s also pretty likely that some of us have attended continuing education courses or workshops in the last couple years that we can’t remember “off the top of our heads”. The frequency of which all these things takes place is the reason that I am a strong proponent of creating a professional portfolio.
A professional portfolio is a visual tool that gives employers, recruiters, scouts, and mentors a complete picture of who you are – your abilities, experiences, education, accomplishments, and potential. Your professional portfolio is proof that you are who you say you are and have done what you say you have and can do what you say you can do. Our Packaged For Success Portfolio Development Seminar will help students, job seekers and entrepreneurs uncover new strengths, record achievements, and create a long-term success strategy. This portfolio will be a collection of your achievements that can prove invaluable in a variety of environments. At the end of the seminar you will have a professional portfolio complete with your employment and business tools, academic records, and civic engagement activities (and more).
