Publishing isn’t the only industry that is rapidly moving to the electronic side. More and more employers are asking candidates for evidence of a web presence, as The Wall Street Journal reported in an article this week. While most job-hunters are active on Facebook and Twitter, not all prospective employees are able to provide an online space that combines their academic work, co-curricular involvement, and professional experience. Lucky for you, such a tool is within your grasp!
ePortfolios are an online space available to the Pace community to post files, images, videos, blogs and various other types of rich media that reflect achievements both in and out of the classroom. Each user has seven pages available (Introduction, Academic Materials, Co-curricular/Extracurricular Activities, Professional Preparation/Resume, Recommendations, Showcase, and Rubrics). Users have the option of using as many or as few pages as they see fit. Privacy settings are flexible and separate for each page. You may choose to make your Introduction page open to the public, but keep your Academic Materials page between you and your professor.
If you are doing any research about the publishing industry, the Pace Library has a lot to offer! On the Library home page, below “Library Services,” click Research Guides, or go directly to the Guides site. These guides point you to research databases, reference tools, websites, and books recommended by Pace librarians.
Many guides include RSS feeds from relevant organizational blogs as well as links to short instructional videos. LibGuides can be printed, are accessible to screen readers, and are even available on mobile devices! Each guide has a Librarian Profile available, so please feel free to contact the librarians with any comments or feedback regarding the guides.
