Training Portfolios - No Longer an Option, But a Requirement

Event Description

A workplace training professional needs a career portfolio to communicate and demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities in ways that a resume cannot.  Portfolios offer a unique way to distinguish yourself from other workplace learning and performance professionals.  Portfolios are now starting to become required for many positions.  Don’t get caught unprepared!


In this session you will learn to create a career portfolio that will give you a competitive advantage in a challenging job market.
