What is a Career Planning Portfolio?
Career Planning Portfolios can be viewed in two ways:
As a product, it is an organized collection of items that represent the interests, values, skills and experiences developed throughout a person's career.
As a process, it offers a framework for students to guide and reflect on all aspects of their career development including self assessment, goal settting, skills and values identification, career and educational transition, work search skills, and life long learning.
