WHAT IS A PORTFOLIO?
A portfolio is an organized collection of evidence that shows your accomplishments both in and out of school. It contains samples of your work that exhibits and reveals the quality and variety of your learning, accomplishments, skills, and experiences.
It is used to support a resume when applying for a job or when applying to a college. I am expecting a professional looking portfolio, one that you can use after this course. You will be adding resources to the portfolio throughout the semester.
Step 1: Find a Job to Apply
Choose a company to apply, find the application form, filll it out and include it in your porftolio.

Step 2: WRITING SOUND RESUMES
How to Write Resumes
Resume is a document that summarizes your experience, skills, and other information. The purpose of a resume is to demonstrate that you are a perfect candidate for a position you are applying for. A resume is written by you, not by someone else. It should be formal, professional, and relevant.

Step 4: COVER LETTER
Cover letters are the first chance you have to impress an employer – they're not just a protective jacket for your CV. The first thing a potential employer sees in your job application is the cover letter. This doesn't just support your CV – it's an opportunity for you to stand out from the crowd and persuade the recruiter to put you through to the next round.
Step 5: Thank you Letter
