Employers want proof. So you say you are a writer? What have you published?
Most of my professional writing cannot be published on my website. My work is often sold directly by my employers or restricted to inside publication.
If you have that problem too, take a closer look at opportunities to write elsewhere. For example, I write research papers often for college courses.
Today I posted this research paper on the ADDIE and Kirkpatrick training models for my portfolio:
I wrote this paper for a short cram course entitled “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” based on the popular work of Dr. Stephen R. Covey. Yes, I will “Sharpen the Saw” often. I am a life-long learner.
What do you do to prove what you’ve done? How can you capture and show someone your greatest achievements?
