Personal Essay

Display your power base through personal achievements    

One of the main purposes of a portfolio is to communicate to others (college admissions counselors, prospective employers, etc.) who you are and why you would be a good fit for their school or workplace. A great way to do this is to write a personal reflection essay or personal statement in which you write about who you are and why you have chosen this career path. (If your desired career is different from your HCC program, write about that. The purpose of the portfolio is to help you land your dream job, not graduate from a program.)
