USB File structure
Where to put what?
Our Portfolio should always have some sort of cover page.
Formatting varies based on a number of factors including, but not limited to…
Name of who we work for or represent (usually for in-company positions)
Usually “Portfolio,” “Career Portfolio,” or “Academic Portfolio.”
Our full name, with the date underneath.
A professional picture of ourselves.
This is the best way to introduce ourselves in a professional, non-personal form with restrictions that are under our control.
A biography should include the following;
Where we have worked.
What we have done.
Skills, interests and hobbies.
Now it is time to work forwards into our new direction!
The first step of starting off new is presenting what’s old
Show off our skills and background in a brief summarized format
Present letters of Recommendation
Show off copies of our academic degrees
Present certifications we have earned
Next we present our philosophy (if pertinent) and examples of our work.
To do this we must look through what we have done.
Have we created any videos, movies, or flash based programs that we can share?
Have we created audio books, music or CD’s?
Has any work we have done been published?
What else can we think of that would represent us?
Some people might think that the first step is the artistic design
Adding color and unique aspects are best left till after organization is accomplished
Remember that this is supposed to be either a professional display
This does not mean that you can’t get a little creative with your Portfolio
Try to keep it within acceptable boundaries

You can alter it later if you want too (preferably if you go wacky today).
Todays cover page is all about creativity. Show off your creative skills!
If you want to create a serious cover page, use Word or Power Point
