You should be quite pleased with yourself. Creating a personal employment portfolio can be a daunting task. But, we know that it is well worth the effort - as you can now see!
But wait, you are not quite finished yet. There are a few items you need to attend to before exhaling.
DON'T FORGET TO:
< Include words Portfolio Available on resume and perhaps, even again, in next cover letter.
< Practice discussing each and every document included in portfolio to be ready for discussion during an interview.
< Focus on intended audience and make readjustments accordingly before interviews.
< Take advantage of every opportunity for show and tell during interviews.
< Make portfolio available before interview if asked, but do NOT leave afterwards.
< Consider developing a shorter version in affordable materials which could be left with a company after interview.
< Keep portfolio current with updated and pertinent materials.
< Be consistent in form and content when including new materials or plan to revamp entire portfolio.
< Have someone proof each and every document.
< Have someone proof each and every document again.
< Have someone proof each and every document again and again and, perhaps, again!
