Portfolio Building


Successful progression in training years and beyond builds the dynamic portfolio of a scientist. Portfolios can include curriculum vitae (CV), resumes, specialized documents of competencies (teaching or research documents, writing samples) and other relevant material. Being proactive and using best practices in crafting and updating these documents is crucial for professional growth. Physical portfolios and online professional profiles (LinkedIn, Twitter, websites, blogs, etc.) are living documents that require grooming and updating in order to be effective. There are many resources within and outside of our office at the University of Michigan that provide guidelines and hands-on training in portfolio building and personal branding.
