1. Think about your goals
Just because the Portfolios section allows you to add up to 20 projects doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to reach this limit.
Your friends and family, as well-intentioned as they may be, should not decide what you should share on your portfolio. What is popular is certainly not what makes you unique. If you need help, ask colleagues or teachers instead – they will be able to guide you in your choice.
Don’t hesitate to tell a story and position your projects in an established order. This will allow visitors to see how you’ve progressed on the academic and professional fronts.
Start each project with a strong, meaningful image. Also, make sure you save a powerful visual for the finale. This way, you can really dazzle your visitors.
It’s crucial to add new projects to your portfolio regularly and update your C.V. You may have a great portfolio, but if it hasn’t been updated for five years, you’ll lose credibility and may even be perceived as lazy.
The new Portfolios section is a public platform open to everyone. Don’t hesitate to use the site’s sharing features so that your achievements reach not only the LCI Education community, but also your community and wider audiences on social networks.
