Get noticed by creating a portfolio online

Move your resume and work samples onto the World Wide Web with sites like WordPress, Weekbly and Wix.

Building an online portfolio can put you on the top of the pile when applying for jobs. Resume reviewers pass through paper after paper after paper – booorinnng. A resume plus a link to a website beneath your signature will lead them straight to a showcase of your skills, accomplishments, and examples of your best work. An added bonus is that it tells the people who are evaluating you that you’ve put in the extra effort.

You don’t have to be some web-savvy genius to do it.  There are plenty of sites that walk you through the process, are easy to manage and – the best thing of all – are totally free.

No matter what you’re interested in, an online portfolio can highlight your assets and enhance your first impression. When an employer types your name into Google, your portfolio will surely be one of the first search results to show up. That has to be better than just your Facebook page!
