Building Your Portfolio

As you apply for internships and full-time positions, you may find it helpful to develop a portfolio of your work-particularly if you are interested in product or structural "design" related opportunities.]-->

A portfolio can include work you've completed for paid positions, internships, or projects that you've completed in partial fulfillment of your degree requirements (i.e. course projects). Due to intellectual property issues, you should request permission from your project sponsor or employer before including any projects in your portfolio that may include proprietary information.

Interested in Architecture School? Stop into Thayer Career Services and check out the Seventh Edition of Architecture Schools, published by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, including descriptions on 250 schools in the US and abroad...

While many individuals develop print or "hard copy" portfolios, we recommend that you develop a web-based portfolio for use in applying for jobs. The benefits of this are many--i.e. it reduces your expense and makes it easier to share your work with employers quickly.

Instructions and resources for developing a web-based portfolio are available through our handout, "Creating an Electronic Portfolio." (Note: If you've seen this site before, you may want to check it out again--we've recently updated it based on the advice of Thayer Alum (and SmartDesign employee) Jonathan Cedar '03.)
