Our careers are very important to us. We spend a great deal of time working at our job, thinking about work and how we can get ahead in our careers. Unfortunately, many people don't spend much time on developing and using the career tools (e.g. portfolio) they need to be successful. Whether we like it or not, to employers, our portfolio represents who we are to them. When we apply for a job we don't always have the opportunity for employers to meet us personally. The first impressions that we make on potential employers are based solely on our career tools such as resumes and work samples. Given that, it is critically important that our professional portfolio present us in the best possible light. This hand-on workshop will guide people through exercises and activities that will help participants build and use a winning career portfolio. Participants will create an action plan that will help them integrate ATD's Competency Model in their portfolio, show them how to use their portfolio to get interviews, how to use their portfolio in interviews and how to get promotions and successful performance appraisals. Additionally, the session will show people how to create and electronic portfolio with minimal technical skills.
