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.)
This semester we did something new. In the recent past, we created both a static HTML and mobile version of the digital resumes and portfolios. With the onset of HTML5 and responsive HTML, I decided to let the students purchase a responsive HTML template to use for their final projects. We still learn HTML, but now they learn how to create a static site (or dynamic, as in a blog) that will work on any screen. These resumes should perform well on your smartphone, tablet and computer screens. Let me know what you think.
These students are wonderful. Most have graduated. I suggest that you will be well served if you pursue them for your agency or organization. They’re sharp! They’re fun! You’ll be lucky to have them, too!
Here they are, in no particular order. Well, actually they are in the order they filled out the online form to share their URLs. By the way, we also did a printed portfolio project from the content represented on their websites. I’ve suggested that for years, but this was the first year it was mandatory for this class.
FYI: This semester’s group marks over a decade of digital resume creation by Auburn University PR students. I’m grateful to all of them for humoring me and working so hard on these projects. War Eagle!
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!
