Career Portfolios Under Construction
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on Career Portfolios Organization skills are very important in today's fast paced world. As our students begin to think about college and/or possible careers, keeping their thoughts in an orderly fashion can be an overwhelming task. This is why all students need to learn about the importance of building and maintaining a portfolio. If done properly, the portfolio can be used during interviews to give a potential employer a quick snapshot of a person's education, experience, and interests, as well as character and ideology. A portfolio also gives students the opportunity to self-assess and learn more about themselves. A student that goes through the steps of organizing a portfolio can create a product that can be a real world benefit to them for many years.
