It’s a website … it’s a portfolio… Whatever it is, it’s much better than a resume

In my classes, I have my students create their own website. I do this in all of my classes and I don’t teach any classes on web design or graphic design. This assignment is popular with my students and extremely useful for them as they move on in their careers. I take course content, small assignments, and components of larger assignments and have students store them on the websites they create during my course. After the course is over, students tell me they put their websites’ links on their resumes and share them during interviews. One student put her website on her business card as a QR code and, during a job fair, showed it to a potential employer—she ended up getting the job!
