Portfolio Reviews


Building and Presenting a Professional Portfolio


Now it is time for you to prepare the Professional Portfolio that you will present at the FINAL EXIT REVIEW (see page 3 of your workbook, Internship 1 - Program Expectations).  During this time, you will self-assess each of your goals using the provided rubric in your workbook (also posted below).  Upon completion of this FINAL EXIT REVIEW, ​and after you turn in the final required program items to your coach, you will receive a final grade and credit on your transcript.

This process is an opportunity for you to showcase and celebrate your amazing work this semester!  It is NOT meant to be stressful, but rather it is your chance to maximize this experience for your own future.  We want you to be able to document your internship by sharing your Professional Portfolio, while thoughtfully describing your experience to an audience (or potential employer) with examples.  Developing this ability is the culmination of the NEXT MOVE Internship Program.
