Employers want proof. It is not all applications and interviews. When you finally have someone’s attention, job hunting is about what you have done.
Handing someone an entire book won’t work either. You have to scrub it, strip it down and make it digestible. Think short and sweet. A few minutes will be all the time you have to make your point.
Good news! Creating a portfolio does not mean spending a lot of money. I have created everything here with tools I already own or by using free evaluation software. YouTube, WordPress and SlideShare host my content for free. What you will spend is time. It’s worth it.
Today I’m celebrating as I post this portfolio piece. On to the next one!
What do you do to prove what you’ve done? How can you capture and show someone your greatest achievements?
