Portfolios use evidence of your education, works samples and skills to tell a carefully crafted story to the world about who you are and what you can do. Portfolios contain an organized collection of artifacts to tell that story.

You can use more than one portfolio to tell more than one story.

Example: Create one portfolio to track your research and another to display your writing. Combine them both into one larger, successful journalist story.

Share your portfolios as evidence to your current skills and future potential. Use them to apply for jobs, promotions, college, to show a transferable skill, and to track personal development.
