Then, showcase your work with a narrative. You can organize them in terms of merit, theme, or simply by chronology. It would also be a plus if you have photos of yourself immersed at work or collaborating with successful people, business, or companies to highlight your credibility and excellence.

Your portfolio compiles all the materials you’ve had in the exercise of your skills, training, and experiences in one site or document. It features your expertise, mastery, and viewpoint through the concrete work that you did in the past. This can be in the form of articles, digital creations, photographs, etc. A CV or curriculum vitae, however, is a written insight of one person’s experience and qualifications for a job.
