The Career Mentor Initiative is back this Wednesday with it's latest installment!
Overall themes and then granular data at the project level, work samples, quantified results, and core competencies. These documents and sites must be highly specialized, carefully designed, and the content strategically finessed to meet the individual's objectives. A glorified resume site (alas, too common) is pointless. There is nothing worse than something that looks good but which upon 10 seconds of reading is the same old same old.
Absolutely. When done well it's undeniably impressive. However, it is quite an undertaking and you'll likely need to work with a professional. The person you chose must have a talent for design and possess the analytical prowess and copywriting skills to leverage your content to maximum effect. Traditional jobs are being restructured into tasks, projects, and deliverables. The portfolio or project document is an extremely effective way to address this shift. And while all your collateral should demonstrate the value you have consistently brought to employers and clients alike, this highlights your larger contributions to your field of expertise or industry, community, and professional network.
