Portfolio and resume take effort. Doing it right takes time and sometimes we get very tired. In general, all creatives are intimidated by this process. But everything is very simple. Here is the key phrase. It will be enough to show their best work simply and effectively. They must understand who you are, what you do, your style. If you can use a simple and effective explanation, you can easily achieve this. You should allow them to get to know you and to be curious about you.
The crowd and confusion are not good.
Keep it simple but make it significant. It doesn’t matter if you put in a lot of work, have years of experience. Your promises are important. You have to show hope. They need to see the approach. Remember, 4 good jobs are always better than 10 average ones. That’s why focus on the message you want to convey. Why are you preparing this? What projects do you want to work on? Which sectors are you interested in? Which position do you want? Your answers to these will be your guide and you will step into a successful resume.
Don’t write a lot of copy. Make it very clear.
You don’t need to write long articles and explain yourself. You shouldn’t strain their eyes. So the interested person can check over it much longer time. Clear and meaningful copies are always the savior. Identify approaches and create your style. How did you work on this project? What did you do in terms of content and what developed? State it briefly. Unique always wins. Pay attention to hierarchical order, chronology, and orientation. But as we always say, be clear.
What if it’s online?
Simple. The sentences above still apply. But there are a few more technical details. First of all, you should be up to date. Everyone wants to see where you were last. Call to action is everything. It would be very useful to provide this with a communication design. And SEO. Yes, search engine optimization. It is very important here, as in any online business. To be accessible, you need to do good SEO work. There are many tools and helpful guides for this. Don’t forget to take advantage.
The story is powerful.
The only thing that stays in mind when it’s all is the story. So tell them your story. Be honest, don’t lie about your work. State your wishes clearly. This is your future. You’re the one going through it, and saying what you want is the most important part of it. Your story makes you special. It arouses curiosity. That’s all you need anyway.
Good luck with your dream job.
