An actor who can show a producer film clips of his or her work is more likely to be cast in a movie than an actor who does not have any documentation of their work. Much in the same way, a workplace learning professional needs a career portfolio to communicate and demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and abilities in ways that a resume cannot. Portfolios offer a unique way to distinguish yourself from other workplace learning and performance professionals.

A career portfolio that will give you a competitive advantage in a challenging job market.

The presentation will address how to:

Demonstrate how portfolio artifacts help achieve measurable business results.

Link career accomplishments to established ASTD Areas of Expertise.

Create an electronic portfolio without learning complicated software.

Describe how to use a career portfolio in the job search and interview process.

Write a personal action plan to design and develop your career portfolio.
