Lessons from a Job Search

Some portfolio tips I learned the hard way

▪️ Cut to the chase. Your intro of yourself should take no more than five minutes.
▪️ Animations and movies > static images. Everyone likes moving things. Makes your presentation more interesting to see things in action.
▪️ Show a summary slide for each project. How long it took, what was your role, what was the goal.
▪️ What were the problems you were trying to solve and the context for the project. Tell a story, help the audience understand. What didn’t you know when you started the project.
▪️ Show results. How did your work move the needle?
