Your resume may have gotten you the interview, but a career portfolio will get you the job

Employers are interested in actions, not words. And a career portfolio shows them that you have the skills, talent, knowledge, and personality they want. With The Career Portfolio Workbook learn how to create a winning portfolio that will land you the mega-bucks job of your dreams.

No longer used only by creative professionals, a career portfolio is the tool to add to your career-search arsenal-whether you're looking for a new job, going for a promotion, changing careers, or seeking admission to college or graduate school. The Career Portfolio Workbook guides you step-by-step through the process of building a targeted collection of documents that provide employers with concrete evidence of what you've done in the past and what you can bring to their organization in the future. Based on extensive research with hiring managers and job seekers, The Career Portfolio Workbook demonstrates how a carefully considered and well-presented portfolio can best validate your skills and accomplishments and how it can be your most effective self-marketing device during the interview.

Win the competitive edge on your next interview with a commanding career portfolio that packs a punch. Complete with checklists, charts, and worksheets, The Career Portfolio Workbook covers:
