Professional Inventory
"Think of portfolios like the filler stuff in
sandwiches. A résumé is like the bread
and meat of the sandwich -- simple and
gets the job done. The filler stuff, like
mayonnaise, lettuce, mustard, and
cheese, make the sandwich more
fulfilling and last longer. Employers
are going to remember the things
you include in your portfolio longer
than they'll remember what you've
put in your résumé" (Dunneback, 2004).
“A portfolio is an organized collection of documents that showcase a person’s work, skills, and career progression.” (Saunders, 2003, p.54).
“The Professional Portfolio for Librarians is a reflective narrative about librarianship, service, and professional/scholarly activity...The Professional Portfolio presents examples of your best work, not a compendium; thus it is selective.” (Elmhurst College Faculty Council, 2000).
What is an ePortfolio?
Danielle S. Apfelbaum's ePortfolio
The best, most impressive platform for
building your
eportfolio is...
...whatever works
for you.
Comfort
Aesthetics
Cost
Be selective.
Be reflective.
Consider format.
Q1.
What evidence do you have to support that image?
Q2.
BRAINSTORM
To begin...
Leadership positions held in local organizations.

Leadership positions held in regional organizations.

Leadership positions held in national organizations.
Q & A
Imagine you're a fly on the wall at a professional conference. If the conversation turned to you, how would you want your colleagues to portray you?
Show, don't tell.
Digital Media:
Use web tools to secure copies:
VIDEOS: KeepVid, SaveYouTube
WEB DOCS: Web2PDF, Jing, Screencast-o-Matic
Unstable if out of your control.
Ask for a copy.
Documents:
ASK: will visitors to my eportfolio be able to view documents as I've intended them to be viewed?
E.g., for heavily formatted documents, consider publishing the documents as PDFs, which will preserve the formatting.
For Job-Seekers
For Employed Libs
Should I create an eportfolio for each job application?
Yes!
No!
“...the job seeker should try to keep the major requirements and qualifications for the position in mind, and organize their documentation around those particular areas” (Saunders, 2003, p.55).
For the librarian seeking reappointment or promotion, “a portfolio functions just as it would in a job interview, supporting claims of skills or tasks accomplished” (Saunders, 2003, p.56).
You've gathered your materials.
You know the professional image you want to project.
Integration of Professional Activities
Narrative
Documentation
Use that information to create the structure of your eportfolio or consider existing templates. The following portfolio template was created by vanDuikerken, Coker, & Anderson (2010) and can be easily adapted for any of the information professions.
