How to leverage your portfolio resume section with semantic....

How to leverage your portfolio resume section with semantic.

Most ePortfolio environments include a resume section. Students are either asked to upload a resume PDF file or fill a form with usual sections like contact information, education, experience, etc. In this presentation, we discuss two related issues: i. the potential benefits for students and employers of adding some standard semantic (EuroPass) to the resume section; ii. the idea of using the resume metaphor as the basis for building an enriched career or presentation portfolio with artefacts, campus activities and reflexive comments. These ideas are illustrated though a pilot conducted in a business school.

    Resume
    Resume (PDF)
    The resume is a section of the portfolio …usually in a separate static PDF
    The resume is generated dynamically from the information contained in the portfolio (semantic).

    5
  • Project at HEC Montréal
    Students
    Resume is an inescapable need
    No easy to write a good resume
    Need some guidance …
    … and a more reflexive process
    Need more than a resume … e-portfolio
    AAEEBL 2011 Conference – Boston, USA– July 26-28
    6
  • Project at HEC Montréal
    Employers (focus group)
    Still use the 2-page resume
    No time to look at e-portfolios
    Need for better and more efficient tools
    Interested to search standardized resume using flexible criteria …
    … and look more closely at 2 or 3 specific e-portfolios
    AAEEBL 2011 Conference – Boston, USA– July 26-28
    7
  • Project at HEC Montréal
    Career Center (focus group)
    Support the students in their resume and job search
    Need tools to provide better guidance and foster a more reflexive approach
    Actual process is cumbersome : receiving PDF resumes and sending comments by mails
    Need tools to be more efficient
    Need to create booklets (MBA Graduating Class)
    AAEEBL 2011 Conference – Boston, USA– July 26-28
    8
  • Project at HEC Montréal
    Possible solution - e-portfolios with a more semantic resume section
    Template for students
    Research by employers
    Better guidance and feedback for the career center with a comment process built in + easy booklet production
    AAEEBL 2011 Conference – Boston, USA– July 26-28
    9
  • PDF Resume is not the answer
    Not searchable for employers
    Cumbersome for career offices
    No real guidance for students … except for outside “How to write a good resume”
    Need something more semantic and linked to a e-portfolio type discourse
    AAEEBL 2011 Conference – Boston, USA– July 26-28

  • What kind of semantic?
    By semantic we refer to an environment where a specific information is linked by the system to its true meaning
    Jacques Raynauld = Name
    HEC Montréal = school
    Etc.
