    Hello Prof. Goodlad,
    I have a few questions about the portfolio.
    Do you want us to Fax this paperwork to you?
    If we’re here till august, we will not have our CP Diploma until then, how do you want us to go about getting that info to you?
    I going to a Career Development class that is coming up soon( if i get approved for that day off), would I need to send you that information as well?
    Do you want our updated resume?
    And ….Are the awards we recieved from this program the ones you need?

    prof. goodlad,

    I am confuse what exactly you want from this as well. I cant really provide much besides and resume, coverletter, and a syllabi. I am planning on doing volunteer work but depends if I could get the day off, and lately I have only received my days off when I have class. Also, i have been pickig up shift because it is really hard to have enough for bills and rent, so i havent had alot of time to volunteer. Please get back to me

  3. Work and school are important but community service is as well. The evidence of service and leadership can be during your time with Disney but can also be from prior college work. Have you received guest fanatic cards? They get posted here. Add a writing sample from your work at Disney (connect to the course site) or prior to Disney.

    The portfolio created will be used throughout your college career and professional as well.
