- “It’s not as hard as you think it is.”
- Get involved in campus activities.
- Make an outline of all that you do, such as a step-by-step job description and a list of what committees you serve on.
- Create a “Brag File”  It can be electronic, but keep paper copies of everything, just in case.
- Get to know your colleagues and ask them to teach you what they do and to explore ways you can collaborate .

SERGIO VILLAMIZAR: (2006 and 2010 recipient)
- Start with a table of contents.
- Include samples of what you’ve created, such as new forms or handbooks.
- Let people know about initiatives you’ve undertaken, such as creating a website for your program.
- Don’t accidentally disclose confidential information to the committee.

- Proofread. Have someone else take a look at it once you’re done to catch any typos you’ve overlooked.
- Make the portfolio well organized and easy to follow.
