Summary, etc.:
"Years before someone lands their first job they should be putting serious thought into the development of their career portfolio. A career portfolio is a collection of documents that provide evidence of a job seeker's interests and skills both specific to a particular job and generic to employment in general. This program covers a range of aspects relating to the compilation of a career portfolio, including defining a career portfolio, collection of information relevant to both specific and generic skills, and putting it all together. As well as hearing from career coach Julie Farthing, the program follows the experience of two (fictitious) students who applied for the same job one having prepared a career portfolio and the other without. It also takes a step-by-step look at how to prepare a portfolio and explains how developing a career portfolio is a highly advantageous strategy when trying to create an impression with an employer."--publisher's website
