about

This fun and interactive book provides information, self-assessments, and check-lists to help you create and use the portfolio that best fits your needs.  

 

Guide to Portfolios works with the premise that all portfolios are not the same and may not be completely interchangeable, this book breaks portfolios into three distinct portfolio categories: assessment, career, and personal. Categories are then broken down further into six different types of portfolios, each used in a different situation with a different audience. A simple four-step process provides you with an easy way to begin and complete the process of building your portfolio. The book closes with specific information, questions, and suggestions for creating each type of portfolio and presenting it to the unique audience for which it is intended.  This is a great resource for individuals looking at career options, K-12 teachers, college and university faculty, students, career development professionals, and anyone who is intrigued by the idea of creating a unique and powerful tool to showcase their success.

Mary Robins is the director of Career Services at Menlo College, a small business college located in Atherton, California.  As director, Mary works with a variety of students of all ages and work/life experiences.  Mary's career has included working as a human resource manager and marketing manager in the consumer publishing industry. ...
