ONLINE PORTFOLIOS: WHO, WHAT, HOW & WHY
AN ONLINE PORTFOLIO (MAY ALSO BE CALLED A DIGITAL PORTFOLIO OR E-PORTFOLIO) IS AN ONLINE REPRESENTATION OF WORK YOU HAVE CREATED, AS WELL AS YOUR SKILLS AND EXPERIENCES. IT COULD BE A WEBSITE, BLOG, OR EVEN A VIDEO CHANNEL. IT COULD INCLUDE YOUR RESUME, A SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS AND SKILLS, IMAGES OF CLASS PROJECTS OR DESIGN SAMPLES, AUDIO AND VIDEO, CHARTS AND SCHEMATICS, PROCESS FLOWS, AND MORE.

WHO USES PORTFOLIOS AND WHY?
IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FOR ARTISTS, ENGINEERS, COMPUTER SCIENTISTS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, DESIGNERS, FILMMAKERS, AND OTHER CREATIVE PEOPLE TO HAVE A WAY TO SHOWCASE AND PROMOTE THEIR WORK. REGARDLESS OF THE MEDIUM(S) YOU WORK WITH, A PORTFOLIO WILL GIVE MORE PEOPLE ACCESS TO YOUR WORK AND A BETTER IDEA OF YOUR ABILITIES. THEY DISPLAY SKILLS AND PROJECTS IN A ROBUST AND VISUAL WAY THAT COMPLEMENTS THE INFORMATION IN YOUR RESUME AND COVER LETTER. THEY ALSO ALLOW YOU TO ORGANIZE YOUR WORK IN ONE PLACE – EVEN IF THAT WORK SPANS DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES.

NOTE: IN SOME CASES, HAVING A CONCISE AND COMPELLING HARD COPY PORTFOLIO THAT YOU CAN BRING TO INTERVIEWS IS ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO SHOWCASE YOUR WORK.
