  • A Resume

  • A reflection paper – 5 paragraphs.

  • A Typed and Revised copy of your in class speech

    • An online journal about your specific career field

  • Turn in your completed portfolio on time, so that you will be ready for the next part of your college and career project, and make sure it has a professional finish.

Each section of the portfolio is outlined in this packet. You MUST complete every entry. You can get the digital handout and type the information, but your final portfolio should be original. This means it should not look like this packet was just filled out. If you choose to type the information you will only be allowed to print your portfolio one (1) time at school. This means you need to make sure it perfect before you print it. Once you have printed it once at school, you will not be allowed to print again. Keep this in mind as you get your final portfolio ready for turn in.

Cover Page (Page 1):

A cover page is the front page of any portfolio. It is very simple and only contains global information. Global information would include:

For your cover page for this portfolio make sure you include:

  • A Portfolio Title – something do with Career and College Research

  • Your Name

  • Teachers’ Names

  • The Project Due Date

  • Class Titles

Below are some examples of Cover Pages. You may choose to model yours after one of these, or create one of your own, if you are feeling creative.

Tip: Keep your cover letter professional and polished. Too much clutter can distract from what you are trying to communicate. Remember to KISS it (Keep It Simple Silly).
