A portfolio is a job search tool that students can use to digitally compile information about themselves in one location. Portfolios document skills, achievements, and academic learning. Portfolios can include artifacts, work, and experiences in a variety of media (Word documents, photos or other graphics, links to web pages, etc.) to demonstrate competencies that you have learned through classes, work experiences, or other areas.
Students are able to set up an online portfolio through UTD CareerWorks (our online job/internship posting database – you should already have an account!). The portfolio product used in conjunction with UTD CareerWorks is called Folio21.
