Building a career portfolio is a way to broaden your professional identity and career focus. It is a new way to think about, talk about and craft your professional future in order to navigate the ever-changing world of work with purpose, clarity, and flexibility. 

It includes skills, experiences and talents that can be mixed, matched and blended and includes traditional paid jobs as well as freelance roles, volunteering, community service and hobbies. Curating your portfolio is more than professional development, it is how you design your life. It gives you greater ownership of your career, as it cannot simply be taken away. 

It also helps you to be proactive, learn and contribute in ways that a traditional career path would not. Telling a good portfolio narrative requires understanding how the different things in your portfolio enhance one another.
