Creating The Perfect Portfolio
Topic: All subjects
Here is an excellent article on creating your online portfolio. If you’re a student looking for a job then an online portfolio is pretty much mandatory. In many instances, your portfolio will be looked at without you present, without any other information about you, and probably by a person who has never spoken to or seen you in person. If your portfolio has to stand alone in a critical situation like hiring, it’s worth spending some time making sure it’s going to get the job done!
