Scott Tech Students Are Preparing for a Competitive Job Market - Jason Smith
Competing for a job is no longer just against local competition. Technology has made applying for a job across the nation or even across the world extremely easy. For years, teachers, architects, writers, photographers, and artists have used portfolios to showcase their skills and qualifications. Because of recent advances in technology and the increasingly competitive job market, professionals in all fields are creating portfolios. Scott Tech students are creating career portfolios to showcase their skills, accomplishments, and future goals to compete in an ever-changing global arena.
Students at Scott Tech create a printed portfolio or use Google Sites to create an e-portfolio to showcase their work, qualifications, and skills. Every program at Scott Tech makes its portfolio unique to fit its industry. Every portfolio will have a biography page, résumé, and examples of work, but not every student portfolio will be the same. Each portfolio will be as unique as the individual. Benefits of a career portfolio are the visual representations of skills, achievements, and projects. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many words is a video worth? A portfolio can have links to videos, letters of recommendation, scanned copies of certifications, and many other artifacts showing evidence of work, skills, and accomplishments. Career portfolios should not replace résumés, but they can make your résumé come alive.
(Jason Smith is the Embedded Communication Arts teacher at Scott Tech. He has been very instrumental in developing a program by which all seniors can earn an elective Communication Arts credit in their specific programs at Scott Tech. He put together the template for the electronic portfolios used in many of our programs.)
