Abstract: This article describes the use of an electronic career portfolio, an e-portfolio, as a career assessment tool. E-Portfolios are an alternative to the traditional paper-pencil instruments used to measure abilities and skills related to jobs. The process of creating an e-portfolio involves identifying skills important in achieving a person's career goals, reflecting on past experiences that document successful acquisition of skills, and creating artifacts that display those skills. Descriptions are provided of a skills matrix in the e-portfolio at one university along with a portfolio contest for marketing the program. Portfolios have been used across all fields and industries and are no longer limited to those in artistic or communications fields. Since the advancement of the Internet, electronic portfolios (or e-portfolios) have become the standard through which users can create, compile, assess, reflect, and share information about themselves.
