Every year an increasing number of employers get interested in the university graduates, most suitable for the requirements the companies set. However, the standard CVs often do not reveal the potential and peculiarities of formation of graduate competences. The authors suggest using portfolio instead of a CV. The authors analyzed 1797 portfolios of TPU students and offered optimal structure and criteria of portfolio. In addition, the authors provide an example of how the achievements reflected in portfolio can be considered. The conclusion is made about the necessity of the portfolio. The authors determined employer’s role in the formation and evaluation of the portfolio. Moreover, the value of tracking the dynamics of growth of portfolio components is denoted as a new performance evaluation system in higher education.
