  • A final step in the development of your portfolio is to prepare yourself for presenting the portfolio during an interview. We may be inclined to think that the portfolio presents itself, and this is true, when the portfolio iust with a job application. However, during the interview we have the opportunity to embellish the portfolio with our first hand experience of the stories the portfolio represents. <br /> Goals <br /> Develop one or more stories for each project or artifact in your portfolio <br /> Focus on accomplishments, challenges, strengths, achievements, skills and talents <br /> Guidelines <br /> 20 minutes <br /> maintain the flow of the presentation <br /> Take your leads from the interview if they present them <br /> Sum up to finish up. Don’t let your explanations trail off. <br /> Don’t overindulge your storyteller <br />
  • To Sum up highlight your perception of the value of this story to the employer <br /> Do not tell each story verbatim, in a rote fashion. This is a preparatory exercise so you have material to draw on as appropriate during the interview. <br /> ACTIVITY - Have students create a quick SOAR for a recent achievement and present to the group. <br />
