"Using my ePortfolio has been very beneficial in my job search. I include the link on cover letters and have had many callbacks and subsequent interviews from my applications. One interviewer had my portfolio open on her computer during the interview and used my work history to form questions for me! She was impressed by my online profile and referred to it throughout the interview process" (Ashleigh Groote)

Tip 1: Choose the right platform for you.
Tip 2: Content is critical.
Explore different ways to build your database of experiences to help you get a visual picture of your achievements. Well-chosen images, links to video clips or files, and clever use of headings and design features will help support your text and will give you greater depth when you are applying for graduate roles.
Use your website structure to highlight your best work, and be ruthless when deciding what to include in your public profile – if a particular experience or reflection doesn’t add any value to your experience, don’t use it.
Tip 3: Organisation is key.
Tip 4: Keep it brief.
Tip 5: Research.
