222. Portfolio

by jfjudah

How to build a portfolio:

  • When starting out, do some work for free to get experience.
  • Record important information, such as the dates of the job, parties involved, and your hours worked.
  • List the project’s goals, show before and afters, and list your accomplishments during the project.
  • Get recommendations from those you worked with.

Keep all this on file, and branch into two versions: one that has every detail of every project and another with just the summary and your accomplishments.

When applying for a position, you will need to tailor your portfolio to the job description. It’s worth it.
