ePortfolios and Reels
An ePortfolio, or an electronic portfolio, is an organized collection of your best creative works. These virtual viewbooks are a digital record of your major projects and experiences, giving you a competitive edge when the time comes to enter the workforce.
It’s no secret that today’s job market is competitive. Most employers now expect candidates to have an ePortfolio. Additionally, it is a required assignment for students completing an internship.
