Advice From the
Employer's Mouth:
"Do not refresh the page between each image

in the gallery to prevent users from having to
scroll down between each click."
articles imbedded within the portfolio
rather than
having every article hyperlinked could attract employers
who do not have a lot of time to spend clicking through."
"Make sure that all of the links within your portfolio work.
None of the links should produce any errors."
Know Your BRAND!
"Make sure that your
bio aligns with your content
. If you discuss being involved in brand marketing for example, employers want to see that work reflected in the content of your portfolio."
"A landing page can look sparse if you do not have any content displayed.
An introduction displayed on the landing page
gives a quick look into interests and personality."
"Employers want to see the area of focus
you are interested in. They are not sure of what your area of focus is when you have such a wide variety of work."
"Make sure the
resume is clear
and legible
in the portfolio."
"Employers want to see
detail about the projects
included in the portfolio. What was your purpose? Objective? Medium? Descriptions help the audience understand the objective of each project."
"Maximize the value of one screen
