Description: 

In partnership with Duke’s Office of Information Technology and other units across campus, a team of students will design, scope, and develop the first iteration of a student-focused portfolio web presence/template that will showcase individual achievement and successes during their tenure at Duke. Meeting with varying Duke stakeholders to explore and define features and functionality, the team of students will leverage existing tools (i.e. WordPress) to present a flexible and user-friendly solution. The solution will feature capabilities including but not limited to pre-built templating for aesthetic customization purposes, a showcase of curricular certifications and achievements bestowed, and a display of specific interest group affiliations and co-curricular accomplishment. The final goal of this endeavor being that students will have a comprehensive showpiece to take with them following their graduation that easily integrates/transitions to other resume platforms.
