We understand that COVID-19 has derailed many students’ plans for internships, studying abroad, and casual employment, just to name a few. Many students may be facing graduation wondering how they can boost their employability, or just want to boost their employability in general. Portfolio Projects give you the chance to gain practical leadership experience for your resume, including hard skills, soft skills, and all-important interview question responses.

If you’ve ever been asked “what was a time you’ve shown leadership?” or “what skills can you bring to this position?” in a job application and not known what to say, this is the program for you. 

In this program you will take an idea (either your own idea or one we’ve prepared; please see below) for a small HASS-focused project i.e. a student lead podcast or even a newsletter, and develop your employable skills by executing that project. You will be provided with up to $250 funding for your project and will be provided with clear instructions and guidance every step of the way. These projects can be implemented either on St Lucia campus or online. Off-shore students are strongly encouraged to participate.

Applications are now closed.
