Portable Skills Portfolio
What is a portable skills portfolio? How will I benefit from having a portfolio?
A portable skills portfolio contains evidence of your skills acquired through previous employment or voluntary work which are transferable from one work environment to another which can showcase you as an asset to a company. Evidence can include evaluations and assessments of your work from peers/experts in your field, awards, certificates, memberships, self-assessments, articles you have written, presentations and so on.
Your portable or soft skills can help you to stand out from the crowd with the competitive advantage in job applications for example. Having a digital portfolio will enable you to pull from your list of skills the most relevant to the job you are applying for. You can include a link to your portfolio from your resume for example, attach the portfolio as additional information to your job application or take the portfolio to your interview.
Examples of portable or soft skills include:
