Alright, the first thing that you’re probably asking is “What’s a Digital Portfolio?” Well, you wouldn’t be alone. Many people don’t know what a Digital Portfolio is, but it’s a useful tool when you’re looking for a position.
A Digital Portfolio is basically a culmination of the work you’ve done throughout your college career that showcases your abilities. So, if you are an artist or a music major you can create galleries of your work. If you’re a law student, you can keep a cache of your papers. If you’re a journalist, you can create a holding of all of your articles. The easiest way to create this Digital Portfolio is through a website creation site such as Weebly, Wix, or WordPress.
Why a website? Easy. When you submit your resume, that’s only one page, a snapshot of what you can do (as it should be). But you can add a website URL or QR code to a website easily and show that you not only can manipulate a resume, but you can also manipulate websites. Not to mention all of your amazing work that you’ve done!
