Collection: Why ePortfolios?

ePortfolios and Employability

Employers are already looking at the "accidental" ePortfolios of job candidates, by Googling their names to evaluate their digital identities from evidence freely available on the Internet.

Recruiters are using LinkedIn and other social media to find and engage new talent.

A learner-owned ePortfolio will help your learners take charge of their digital identities, develop them professionally and use them to advance their careers.

Savvyfolio.net has a compelling collection of tools and practices to help your learners achieve their career goals, before and after graduation.

Please note: these pages are provided for the purpose of general information about ePortfolios applied in different contexts, based on wide-ranging research of public sources and a variety of technology solutions. Presenting this information in this context does not imply an endorsement of savvyfolio.net.
