- Hello, I'm Lauren Bacon. This course is aimed at web designers and other creative professionals who want to create a standout portfolio that will help land a job with an agency or an in-house creative team. When you're beginning a job search as a web designer, brushing up your portfolio is likely pretty high on your list, but how confident are you that your portfolio is going to impress perspective employers. In this course, we'll explore the five essential elements that employers are looking for in a portfolio. And we'll look at how to describe your previous projects in ways that will appeal to perspective employers.
I'll help you think strategically about which projects to feature, how to position them to employers, how to convey your personality, your problem solving skills, and your range, and how to avoid the pitfalls that can undermine a portfolio. This course will help you fine tune your approach and understand the details that can take your portfolio from good to great. Because a great portfolio can make the difference between being passed over and landing your dream job.
