Why Creating an Online Portfolio Can Help You Stand Out as a College Student

Building an online portfolio of your work can help you stand out as a candidate, and it’s another showcase of yourself and your work beyond a resume. Regardless of which roles you might apply for (marketing, engineering, copywriting, design, etc.) there are rewarding benefits that a portfolio can bring.

To start, online portfolios show your initiative to showcase your work. And your work is where you can demonstrate your creativity and attention to detail. These are opportunities for potential employers to understand your style, approach, and work ethic.

Fortunately, there are already many well-known and effective online resources available to you to create an online portfolio. Depending on your field of interest, you can use:

  1. GitHub: For all your computer science and software engineering students, GitHub is a great platform that allows you to share code projects and samples. You can easily share your profile link to anyone, anywhere - and in particular, on your resume.
  2. WordPress: You can create a portfolio from scratch using WordPress. This platform easily allows you to create a website from the ground up to fit your needs. 
  3. Dribbble: For designers, Dribbble is an awesome community for designers and creatives that allow you to showcase your work and connect with other students and professionals  in your field. You can also create a profile and upload your work to your portfolio to get noticed.
