Just as you don't go to battle against the enemy with bare hands without a shield and sword, in this age of technology, entering the job market without your own digital presence or portfolio website is foolish.
Creating a portfolio website may seem complicated and expensive, but in reality, it is not that difficult. There are many logical reasons behind creating a portfolio website for yourself.
"Promotion is propagation!" We have all heard this saying. To survive in the 21st-century competition, you must stand out among the rest of the 10. And so in digital Bangladesh or the whole world, a portfolio website has now become a "must have". because
In today's market, skills are not only required to be acquired but also to be promoted. And a portfolio website is one of the best ways to promote and promote yourself as a digital medium.
Why create your own portfolio website?
As mentioned earlier, there are many logical reasons behind creating a portfolio website. Here are some special reasons:
Create a new age modern resume with your own portfolio website:
Let's say you have been working as a digital marketer in a multinational company for the past five years. You are in a position where you are doing your best. You have already brought several successes to the company.
Just as one was asked to keep one's CV or resume updated, now one is asked to keep one's portfolio updated. So, highlight all the achievements you have brought to the company. If you have done any work in a team then highlight your contribution to the team. This will increase both your title and position in the next workplace.
Spending a little time in a day, week, or month on this website is invaluable. This portfolio website will be your resume when you next look for a job in a new organization. And because this resume is not printed on old paper, you are one step ahead of other job seekers.
Highlight career progress and interest in learning:
Learning anything new can be overwhelming at times. But everything seems easy if the right guideline or right approach is followed. How to learn anything in our detailed article “How to learn anything?” - You can read.
If you add a blog section to your portfolio website, and if you write regularly, then you are golden! That doesn't mean you have to be a perfect article writer! You can do this by knowing some basic things.
I was talking about the blog section. In this section, highlight step by step what you are learning, and what you plan to learn in the future. Mention how you prefer to learn, which learning techniques you follow, etc.
Imagine you are a front-end web developer. You are now looking to become a full-stack web developer. For this, highlight what you are learning from where, how you are determining the syllabus, how much time you are achieving the goals, etc. This will have two benefits.
In case of getting a job in a new company, you will definitely be ahead of the other 10 people. The reason is that your interest in learning, and learning style these things are very attractive to higher officials of the organization in hiring. Believe it or not, your eagerness to learn will put you ahead of the curve in any field.
Another is to create a personal notebook. Here you can track your work progress. Write something down so you don't forget it. Even after a long time, if you see it once, you will think "Yes, I should learn about that".
Increase your credibility:
In course of time, you will meet many people. Join new communities. Some of them will help you to take you to a higher seat. It requires a lot of faith. But who will believe you in your right mind?
Here is a scenario of two people, who will you choose?
1st Person: The person who verbally presents to you, “I am a web developer. I have created the websites of many domestic and foreign clients”.
2nd Person: Who in written form or presented his portfolio site before you “I have developed these 4 domestic IT firm's web sites, fixed these 3 web site bugs, developed these 5 foreign client's 5 e-commerce web sites, Skilled in On-Page SEO and now learning Digital Marketing from Bahubrihi”
It goes without saying that you will trust the second person!
So when you showcase your work, problem-solving techniques, etc. through your portfolio website, no one has to go and say anything. Rather, they can judge your qualifications themselves.
It could also be that someone saw your regular blog writing and invited you as a freelance article writer for their website.
