I ll start my last semester of my nursing program in a month, graduating in December. I have thought of creating my portfolio now since I am still in summer and have time to do it.
I want to ask some of my professors for Letters of Recommendations(LOR), but I have a few questions in regards to this:
1- Do I tell them that these LORs are for when I start applying for jobs before graduating?
2- Do these professors include a date in the letter? Do they send them to me via email or how does it work?
3- What kind of stuff should my portfolio have? I want to have 2-3 copies of the portfolio and take them personally to the unit managers.
I am in CA and know how crazy the job market is, that is why I decided to post here since you guys have graduated already.
Also, if you can give me advice that you wish you knew in terms of getting a job upon grad, what would it be?
Thank you guys in advance, God Bless!
