Week 12: Framing Your Portfolio Artifacts

Quinn WarnickWeekly Updates

I hope our conversations and class workshops on job hunting and cover letters have been useful. For the remainder of the semester, we’ll focus mainly on your online portfolios, but I’m happy to review and help you revise your job materials if you’re applying for a specific position. Just let me know how I can help.

During Week 12, we’ll talk about how to present and explain your portfolio artifacts to nonacademic audiences (e.g., potential employers). Before Wednesday, you should select at least three specific samples of your academic work and be ready to work with them in class. In addition, the structure of your website should be complete by Wednesday — that means your home page, your “about me” page, your résumé, and your contact page should all be integrated into the template you’ve chosen. (Create placeholder pages for your artifacts; we’ll work on those during class and in the coming weeks.)

Questions? Comments? Desperate pleas for help? Send me an email or come see me during office hours (T 2–5, W 9–12).
