Overview

Professionals and graduating students alike are discovering that portfolios are not just for artists and photographers anymore. As a powerful representation of all of one's skills, abilities, and experiences, a portfolio can help just about anyone find a job, change careers, get promoted, negotiate a raise, or even market one's own business.

Because it is more than just a resume, a portfolio gives a job seeker a competitive edge. It includes work samples, excerpts from presentations, speeches, performance appraisals and awards, letters of recommendation, and other documents that highlight desirable skills and accomplishments.

Portfolio expert Martin Kimeldorf explains step-by-step how to create dynamic job portfolios on paper or electronically with everyday computer software, and then how to use them most effectively in job searches, negotiations for raises and promotions, and career changes.
