Student ePortfolio: Career Focus

If ePortfolio is defined with a basic premise—a purposeful collection of works—then Florida State University guides students to the purpose of career preparation. The FSU Career Portfolio resource page leads with a clear explanation about the processes students follow. Click on "Career Portfolio Walk-through Presentations."

Among other things, the Walk-throughs explain a key advantage of the career portfolio: granting access to "referred users." Students can create access keys for use by potential employers (and anyone else) who can either log into an FSU web page or simply follow an embedded link straight to the portfolio. With the option of creating unique keys for each referred user, the student can then track the who and when of log-ins.
