The Production of an Online Portfolio and its Effects on a Future Job Search in Education

By Aaron Cook

Aaron Cook is a Senior year English Education major at Millersville University, a passion he has pursued for the better part of the past decade. He constructed this presentation in part for his Digital Portfolio course, but primarily for his own enlightenment on the topic of just how a professionally documented portfolio might positively affect the application process and general job-hunting efforts of a newly graduated teacher-to-be. As such, he intends to take the lessons learned from this experience, the same lessons he hopes to impart with his presentation, and put them to work in achieving his long-time dream of teaching English, not just on American soil, but abroad, enriching his own life as well.
