Stand Out From the Crowd
Many people still think that all it takes to get the right job is to have a good resume. While a resume is important, it isn’t a good indicator of your skills because it doesn’t actually prove anything. A resume is simply a list of things you say that you can do but many employers and admissions officials are a little weary of taking people at their word. Instead, they prefer to see the results of what you have done and one of the best ways to prove yourself is by showing them how you accomplished a project. Whether it is through photos of a finished product or an entire presentation that traces the steps you took to bring something to life, anything that offers proof is better than (possibly) empty words.
This is especially important if you’re applying for a job or a program where being able to solve complex problems is de rigeur. Even if your process happens to be a little different than theirs, it still shows that you understand the complexities of a given task and proves that you understand how to operate many moving parts.
Curate Your Work
Being able to present your work in the way that proves your point best is another benefit of having an online portfolio. While your body of work might be impressive on its own, it might be more impressive if you’re able to guide people through it and show or tell them how you have grown or added to your accomplishments. Curation is also important if you’re applying for a job or to a school where your previous work might not perfectly line up with what they do. Being able to give background on your work will let them judge it on its merits.
