Career Portfolio Tasks

If you are a Cross Intern (formerly called "TA") or have signed up to create a Career Portfolio, this list of tasks is for you! (***IMPORTANT: As an intern, you are required to complete the individualized tasks you have picked with your Career Counselor in order to pass your Internship class.)


Additionally, for all students, the Career Portfolio can be turned into your Senior Capstone Project!



If you need help completing these tasks, please visit the College & Career Center:

 

Located on the first floor in the main hallway - next to the Body Shop

Or by emailing: Jane Kovel (jane.kovel@nhboe.net)
