CARD 405 Career Development

Week 5 Discussion

DQ1 CONSIDERING THE RESUMÉ

This week, you will be preparing a targeted resumé, which is directed towards a specific job posting; however, your text details a few other types of resumés. Take a moment to review other types of resumés and the purposes they serve.

If you are comfortable, please share your resume, and provide feedback to your peers.

DQ2 THE ELEMENTS OF A PORTFOLIO

Your Week 2 and 3 Lessons, as well as your text, explain the process of creating a career portfolio. Last week, you developed a LinkedIn profile, which is a component of an electronic portfolio. Over the next 2 weeks, we will draft items that help build your professional collection of artifacts. Take a moment to reflect on the many projects, certifications, courses and teams you have been a part of. Do you have documentation of these accomplishments? The portfolio (your LinkedIn Profile) is your chance to show-off a comprehensive collection of these highlights from your life experiences. What documents from your life’s accomplishments do you need to locate? Take this time to share and provide feedback to your peers.
