Question description

Portfolio

You will create a professional planning portfolio that contains a Core section—completed by all students—and either an Employment section or a Graduate School section, depending upon your post-baccalaureate plans. The final section of your portfolio will be a copy of your review paper, which has been corrected according to the feedback you received from your instructor.

 

 

The Core section will contain the following documents:

  • A statement describing your immediate and long-term career and life goals, including an explanation of why these goals are appropriate and realistic in terms of your curricular, extracurricular, professional, and personal experiences
  • Students will write a paper reflecting upon their educational experiences within their psychology program journey, using the Program Goals as an organizational paradigm. That means you will organize your paper using the Goals. Sections of the body of the paper will correspond to the Goals. This paper should include thoughts regarding successes and challenges, new insights, and personal transformations. You should relate specific courses and concepts to your journey and to your future plans. This should be at a deep level rather than a surface mention. You must address each of the Program Goals which is displayed below and discuss how you have specifically met that goal, referencing courses, papers and concepts. List the Program Goal verbatim (with proper citation) and then address each component to receive maximum points. It is your choice to choose which course or paper meets the Program Goal; Program 2 is the only one that requires the use of course (300/ 305).  The paper should integrate thoughts and knowledge from the cluster areas. It is not just personal thoughts. The reflective paper will be 7 to10 pages, double-spaced, not including the expected title and reference pages. APA format is expected and you must reference yourself when quoting from past papers. Only academic/scholarly sources should be used. You should organize it by the Program Goals and use headings per the APA Manual.
  • A current, accurate, and professional-appearing resume or curriculum vitae written
  • An address where you can be reached after graduation

 

b. The Employment section will contain the following documents:

  • The results of a computerized job search that yielded at least three job possibilities and a brief report that explains why each of these programs is appropriate for you based on your immediate and long-term career and life goals as described in the first section of this portfolio.
  • A professional-appearing cover letter that can be modified for specific job applications
  • Completed letter of recommendation request forms from at least three appropriate people who have agreed to write you strong letters of recommendation for a job

 

 

c. The Graduate School section will contain the following documents:

  • Results of a search for appropriate graduate programs that yielded at least three possible programs and a brief report that explains why each of these programs is appropriate for you based on your immediate and long-term career and life goals as described in the first section of this portfolio.
  • A professional appearing personal statement that can be modified for specific graduate programs
  • Completed letter-of-recommendation request-forms from at least three appropriate people who have agreed to write you strong letters of recommendation for graduate school
