MY portfolio is now up to date! I completed this goal on Saturday. (Again, I must stress that a portfolio is always a work in progress!) I arranged my stories according to category, and made sufficient copies of each to begin sending them out to prospective employers. I’ve already done some of that this past week (see goal #4) and I hope to be doing more in the week ahead. Thankfully, I won’t have to eat liver for failing to attain this goal! My stomach and taste buds are dancing with delight. 6 years ago

I expect this goal to be finished by Friday. The home improvement projects have dominated my time this past week. I figured I’d give myself some added incentive to get this thing done. Liver, YUCK!!! 6 years ago
In the last week I’ve added a few more articles to the smallish pile of clips in my portfolio. I’ve already sent some clips out in my quest to find a job I enjoy. (See my goal #4.) With the addition of two or three more clips, I should be able to mark this item done. Although, a portfolio is always a work in progress! 6 years ago
Spent some time sorting through my “clips,” collecting the ones I’ll include in both the “actual” (for lack of a better word) and digital versions of my porfolio. Backstory: I once had two digital versions of my portfolio online, but both were blown away last year. Earthlink, my ISP, screwed up and trashed the files on my homepage. No explanation. No “sorry.” (Note to self: Why haven’t I changed to another provider?) Then – stupidly – I allowed my .mac account to lapse, and the good folks at Apple purged my folders before I paid the $100 annual renewal fee. Of course, I wasn’t able to locate the cd backup I made. Lessons learned: 1.) save your stuff; 2.) put it where you can find it; 3.) technology can not save you from yourself!6 years ago
This ties in with the next goal on my list: getting a full-time job that I enjoy. Can’t do that without an updated portfolio. Sorth of basic, right? So why haven’t I done it? I MUST! 6 years ago
Yay! I finally got my butt in gear and did it! It took me a few days, but now it’s done. Whew. Now on to getting a job… 6 years ago
Since I’m up all night I figure I should put some of this awake time to good use. I’ve been slowly, and I mean SLOWLY compiling my work. A couple of weeks ago I got around to sizing all of it. Now it’s just a matter of putting them on their own pages, writing descriptions, and linking all the pages together. So much brain effort! I don’t think I’m going to redesign it, just update it with some new work. A whole redesign would take WAY too much effort, and time, and I’ll be homeless by then! 7 years ago
Aside from the obvious benefits of teaching amazing and talented people, one of the great things about working at the Nova Scotia Community College is Portfolio Learning. I’ve completed my portfolio for work, but Portfolio is a process and not a destination and I’ve got to make a more interactive version and collect more of my work together. I’ve been collecting stuff for years (yes, that’s the reason why I don’t throw anything out) and scanning much of it, so now I need to organize it and add interactivity. In many ways, a portfolio is a documentary about yourself and where you are going. Now I have to make the newest version. 8 years ago
