Principle 3, Scenario 1
You are an undergraduate business major who has composed an ePortfolio for your English course at your college. You have received consistently positive feedback from the educator on your work. Now that you wish to use examples from this portfolio in your application for an internship, you seek advice from the career center. Your advisor encourages you to include writing samples from your existing portfolio in your application yet cautions you not to include everything because you are now creating a portfolio for employability purposes and not to receive feedback on your learning experiences.
You select appropriate examples and create another portfolio specific to your internship application in which you can frame these examples, provide contextual information, and link to other experiences that are valuable for your potential employers.
