The last few weeks in my MC 4001 class have been busy preparing for the transition from our group to the SCVNGR company taking over for our client, the Baton Rouge Zoo. I also have been working on my online portfolio for the class by using Jobrary.
As for the SCVNGR project, we have been busy preparing the last few elements for our client. Our first objective was to create an instruction guide of how to use SCVNGR so the employees at the Baton Rouge Zoo would be able to communicate properly how to use the application and how to claim the rewards for the trek.
We have also been working on our mini-campaign book. We need to collect all of the materials used and finish completing the transition over to the SCVNGR representatives. We also need to create our presentation for next week and invite our client representative to the presentation.
As for my online portfolio, I have been adding files and creating the resume part of the website. I feel as though this will be a good thing to show employers so they can get a feel for how I write and for them to see my creative side. Employers can only learn so much about you from looking at your resume and cover letter. So I believe for them to get a chance of looking at your actual writing style and how you organize your paper is a great advantage over other potential employees. We are required to put 10 items in the portfolio so I am currently going back and correcting all of my papers from this semester. Most of my papers are about Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. The other papers are from our group, Roaming Tigers PR, and were included in our SCVNGR mini-campaign.
I plan on giving my profile a very professional feel to it. It needs to be organized very well and include only my best writings. It needs to be edited to the best of capabilities to ensure that there are no errors when showing it to a potential employer because that could turn it from an advantage to a glaring disadvantage.
