Recently our recruiters have been digitally delighted.
Candidates cart their iPads to their interviews presenting their resumes and portfolios digitally. With the flip of a finger we have been wowed, impressed, and sometimes, a little frightened.
There are many pros to digital presentations:
- Quality images and material
- Sleek and chic
We have been surprised when faced with some startling personal images mixed in with “sample images.”
The cons to digital presentations:
- No fluid presentation prepared – resulting in personal photo montages
- Confusion in locating the presentation causing the recruiter/hiring manager to wait
SAVE FACE with the following by avoiding embarrassing moments while presenting your digital portfolio.
- Easy access to the presentation
- Make the presentation user friendly so you can hand it off to the recruiter/hiring manager for their viewing pleasure
Have you presented a digital portfolio in the past? What were the benefits in using this method over print portfolios?

We are always looking for innovative, fresh new ways to apply for jobs and network. Heather Mundell, Life and Career Coach, gives some great pointers on her blog, Life@Work.
Free apps on your smart phone, iPhone, or Tablet are great tools to accessing and applying for jobs on the go.
Job Boards that have phone applications include:
- Career Builder
If you’re not app savvy try downloading one app at a time to get familiar with the interface. Don’t overwhelm yourself – searching for a job is hard enough. Good luck and comment if you have questions!
