What is an online professional portfolio?

An online professional portfolio is a collection of your work and information about you as a professional OR transitioning to a professional. Whereas a resume tells prospective employers about who you worked for and what you did, a portfolio gives examples and showcases your skills. E.g. an artist or writer. They can pull together published works and works of art and show them to potential employers. 

E.g. A marketer can have analytic reports that convey the success of their campaigns
E.g. An accountant can feature excel spreadsheets and formulas they’ve created to streamline an audit. 
E.g. An educator can feature initiatives, program development or Syllabus created and used in an educational environment.
E.g. A Business Administrator can showcase their business, business management strategies, and group meetings they have directed.

Today, you can begin your career journey earlier in the process by creating an online professional portfolio. With your consent your online professional portfolio can be added to the Open to Hire Page (coming soon on the website and newsletter) for recruiters to review and to be hired sooner.
