Dorothy - Child & Youth Care
Challenge Method: Portfolio
"I received academic credit for my portfolio and I have used it twice in interviews.
I would recommend other people develop a portfolio for academic credit or employment because in the end it is an amazing overview of my accomplishments to date which helped me see areas I could improve on and areas that I wanted to pursue.
As I was putting my life into pages I was proud of my skill sets and accomplishments.
Creating a portfolio helped me to better understand myself, my frame of reference as well as further my career.
Although it took time and energy to create, employers and faculty were very impressed by my portfolio and I know it played a significant part in my career trajectory."
