Student Digital Portfolios – April 22, 2019

Landing a job after graduation is a competitive game. Students need to think out of the box to truly stand out from the crowd and get attention. You can’t really judge a person’s skills, character, or experience based on qualifications and claims alone. Learn about different portfolio options that are available to all students at ACU (even after graduation) and how digital portfolios can enhance your presence in the job market.

Presenters: Marisa Beard, Stephen Rektenwald, and Amos Gutierrez
