You Need An Online Career Portfolio
“Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility . . . . In the final analysis, the one quality that all successful people have is the ability to take on responsibility.”
— Michael Korda
Editor-in-Chief, Simon & Schuster
“The price of greatness is responsibility.”
— Winston Churchill
You need an online career portfolio.
You may be an employee.
You may be self-employed.
Or you may be a business owner.
You all have something in common. Yourself!
There is only one you! You have unique experiences, personality traits, strengths, and skill sets.
And you may be what the next company or customer may be desperately looking for.
Managing your career or business in this ever-changing economy is a bit like going for a roller coaster ride!
You’ve got to take responsibility for your own career success!
One of the key success factors for career management is an online career portfolio.
I’m currently designing a new free eBook for readers and subscribers to this blog, called How To Design Your Online Career Portfolio.
Here’s a sample from the book to show you how important your own online career portfolio will be to your continued employee or business success.
Your Online Career Portfolio Will Showcase Your Unique Selling Proposition
An online career portfolio is your way of showcasing your strengths, talents, areas of competence, and accomplishments.
It will give you a distinct advantage over others who have not taken the time to organize all this into an attractive sales presentation. Your online career portfolio will serve as your portable resume as you grow and change.
Before considering this topic, I did not have anything together in one place. My accomplishments, reviews, awards, and documents were scattered in different places.
Writing this eBook has changed all that!
Your Online Career Portfolio Will Breed Success Consciousness
By keeping your online career portfolio polished and organized, you’ll be thinking ahead about what further goals, accomplishments, and areas of competence you want to add to your portfolio.
You’ll have a proactive mindset and not a reactive one.
And it’s well documented that those who take action on what they can control feel more confident as they face the tides of shifting change.
