At the Buffalo EOC, the classroom is just a starting point. Our students receive a full range of career services to prepare for externships, job placement, and career advancement. Career Services staff can meet with you 1:1 to help you create a portfolio with your employment documents, prepare you for an interview, and provide you with job search assistance and career advice.
Your career portfolio is a collection of your career, education, and professional activities. It provides insight into your personality and work ethic. Typically, a portfolio will include your resume, cover letter, and reference page; additional documents that can be included in a portfolio are work samples and reference letters. Utilizing a portfolio can help you have a more organized job search and standout in an interview. Career Services will work with you to help you develop a professional portfolio.
An interview is your moment to be confident and tell an employer why you can do the job and why you should be hired for the position. We are here to help you prepare and get the job that is a right fit for you.
