Do You Have An Electronic Portfolio To Showcase Your Talents to Employers?

No student should leave higher education today without a collection of their accomplishments in an electronic format. WIX would allow students the ability to do this in a cost-effective manner (free site and domain). The ease of use of the tool makes it perfect for those students who are not tech savvy, allowing for creativity and professionalism. By visiting the Career Transitions department, a student can be introduced to WIX and given the tools to build a portfolio site that highlights their personal and professional endeavors.

Your Portfolio Could Contain:

  • Letters of reference
  • Resume or Vitae
  • Lists of accomplishments
  • Samples of work (e.g., items produced from internships or co-op education experiences, class projects, items produced from previous jobs)
