Online Portfolios….not just for HCI, every SI student needs one!
I’m graduating from SI this term and am in the thick of my job search. In the last week, I went to two interviews. I was able to refer the individual I was talking with to my online portfolio to see my work. In both cases, it was to show my writing. An online portfolio is nice because I don’t have to remember to carry the paper or worry that I’m taking the wrong paper to an interview. Instead, I can be confident there is a balanced variety of my work at my site. My online portfolio isn’t super fancy, but it’s functional and it is convenient for employers to view my work. If you do not know how to make your own online portfolio, you can get help around campus.
