Write a resume

System: ePortfolio »

ePortfolio comes packaged with a resume function. It provides you with prompts to help you develop professional career portfolios. Each section (e.g. Employment history, Publications) can be individually added to pages to help you customise your portfolios. You do not need to fill in every section of the resume function to display completed sections.

This user guide will give you a brief overview of the information you can include in the ePortfolio resume sections.

Note: All information in your resume is private until you share it via a page.
