  • Skills - Portfolios - Content

Generally, portfolio sections will reflect the specific segments of your life that you wish to highlight, such as Honors, Education, Affiliations, Volunteer Work, DTP Work, Fund-raising, Community Action, Research, Teaching, Advising, Mentoring, etc. This is especially true for those recently graduated or for students seeking internships.

If you are interested in promotions or raises at your place of employment, however; it may be beneficial to replace the functional approach with a chronological listing of accomplishments.]
