Have you ever been to a job interview where you were one of many candidates and left feeling like you needed an extra “something”? If so, a career portfolio is a perfect solution! This document collection showcases your characteristics, experience, accomplishments, knowledge, and skills with a more personal and unique approach. Not only can you use a career portfolio in an interview, but it is often useful when seeking a promotion, during performance reviews, and when changing careers or industries. It is best to start this collection early in your career; however, it is never too late. This session will review how to build your portfolio and is geared toward industrial hygienists and safety professionals at all career stages.
