Abstract/Description: This study examined whether or not students using an online career portfolio, including the matrix for identifying and reflecting on transferrable skills, enabled them to more effectively and confidently communicate their skills in a simulated (mock) job interview. Three groups were studied, those completing the skills matrix in the portfolio, those using the portfolio but not the skills matrix, and those not using the portfolio. Results indicated only one difference across the groups on the five skills self-ratings completed by the students. Specifically, those completing the portfolio skills matrix were less likely to report having taken steps to develop workforce skills than those not using the portfolio. Other findings pertained to difficulties in conducting research on the effectiveness of online career portfolios and suggestions for correcting such problems in the future.
