A Portfolio Is Your New Resume

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

The job market for learning professionals is rapidly shifting. More and more companies are hiring for tangible skills and talent. This means they care more about what you can offer them right now, regardless of the length of your employment history or your education credentials. As a result, to be competitive and land your next gig or client, it’s more important than ever that you can showcase your work, skills, and talent. To put it simply, a resume alone isn’t enough to get hired—you need a portfolio. In this session, you’ll explore why portfolios aren’t just for freelancers and why and how you should start building yours ASAP. You’ll explore how to pick the right tool for building your portfolio, how to use it to tell your skills, and how to overcome common challenges and best practices for curating your portfolio examples. This session was presented at the ATD21 Conference, held @Home and @HQ, in Salt Lake City, on August 28 - September 1, 2021.
