Wikis > Career portfolio

Career portfolio is a collection of words, pictures, and/or the vast array of multimedia possibilities that demonstrate a client’s unique skills and talents. The jobseeker puts together a sample of his/her work in order to help the employer evaluate their abilities. It is commonly used when seeking certain types of employment, for instance in artistic/design fields, yet is not limited to those fields. It is used in self-marketing in order to present one’s best work. It is sometimes also known as a job skills portfolio.
