Please visit the final projects from our Spring 2017 Style & Design classes.
They are constructed in HTML5/CSS3 and will work on either your computer, tablet or smartphone. These projects are the culmination of a semester of work by some wonderful students.
Their projects include the creation of a magazine, brochure or interactive PDF, infographic, logo, animated GIF, tutorial / how-to video and more.
Students also include projects from their previous class experiences including a survey research project, PR writing media release and press kit, case study, campaign plan, whiteboard presentations and more.
Each project is unique and serves as a representation of the student’s skills well beyond what you will find in a traditional resume.
Software used includes Adobe Creative Cloud’s Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver (Text Wrangler, Notepad++), screen capture software (SnagIt, Quicktime), Canva, WordPress, Ning and other desktop and SaaS software.
The purpose of this semester-long exercise has two main elements: process and product. They both require the following practices:
Personal brand marketing
Here are some of their front page screen shots. Hire them … now!
Here they are! Our Fall 2014 Auburn University PR studenet digital resumes and portfolios, also referred to as eportfolios. These projects are the culmination of a semester long process that pulls together each student’s overall school and internship work experiences.
They are HTML 5 responsive websites. Each site also has a blog which features each student’s writing assignments for the semester.
Share their work with your colleagues and hire them!
Auburn PR Digital ePortfolios and Resumes – Fall 2014
NOTE:Some students choose to take down their projects at the conclusion of the class. In earlier classes, some students may have allowed their domains to expire. So, please forgive any dormant links you may encounter.
Here are the digital eportfolios for Auburn University PR students from Spring 2013. We like to call these digital resumes and portfolios. We’ve been creating them in classes for over a decade. Recently, a movement among universities across the country has gained strength and they prefer to call them eportfolios. To me that term is very Web 1.0 … but, we are happy to see many others now agree that creating a digital version of a student’s resume and portfolio is very important. So, we won’t quibble over terms. (Cross-posted in our Auburn PR Tumblr blog.)
Fall 2008 saw a new group of students create their digital portfolios and resumes.
I’ve been slow in sharing last semester’s student projects. My apologies.
Below, you will see links to all of the digital portfolio and resume projects from my students last semester, Fall 2008.
Check them out. Hire them. Bring them in for internships. A few have already graduated and landed jobs, but some are still looking. We always tell them not to ‘settle’ for a job, but rather to seek out the job they really want. Find that “right fit” for themselves.
Your firm or organization may well be the fit they are looking for in public relations/marketing.
Here they are in the order in which they sent me their URLs last semster.
This summer’s crop of digital resumes and portfolios are up and ready for you to view.
Hire these students. Hey, they worked with a wide array of software and participated in social media on several sites. They have an understanding of the software and social media practice. Looking for interns? New hires? Check out these student resumes. Hire them. You’ll be happy you did!
