Websites are today's way of connecting people with their businesses, organizations, hobbies, interests, and thousands of other topics.  It's like a digital "Swiss Army Knife" replacing business cards and printed resumes.

Follow these Instructions for Building your Portfolio Site


Your Website needs to have these pages (also called the Site menu) to be able to present all of your work and professional information. Be sure these tabs are on your homepage so others can easily navigate your website:

  • HOME







  • You can also add additional pages if you have other talents and interests, for example; Drawing, Writing, Painting, writing, etc.


These are brief descriptions of what each page should include



This is your Welcome/Landing page. You can write a greeting, asking them to have a look around and to thank them for visiting. Include shortcuts to any important content you want to highlight (a particular page, contact, etc.).



This page will have your experience, work history, skills, abilities, and education in the form of yur Resume. You can pick out a Microsoft Word template online or use a resume-building website like these examples:



This page will be a collection of all of the photos and videos taken in the program as well as any work that is done outside of the classroom. For example, if you like to do outdoor photography, shoot portraits, or record videos of sports activities, you should also add this work to your website. Just remember that you should use your best judgment when adding content outside of the classroom. Make sure pictures are “Safe for Work” and don’t show any inappropriate material (drug use, profanity, nudity, illegal activity, for example, trespassing) content that would cause a school or potential employer to not accept or hire you.



This page will be a collection of sound effects, songs, voice-overs, podcasts, and any other type of audio clip. If you have any audio clips that you have made outside of class and would like to showcase them to others you can also put them on this page. If you intend for prospective schools and employers to listen to these clips, please make sure they are appropriate for the audience. Be aware of any profanity or inappropriate or offensive language.



This page will be a collection of your marketing and design projects. Examples of this are logos, posters, Social Media advertisements, Photoshop projects, and just about anything else other than videos, photography, and sound projects. You may also include any side projects done outside of class that showcase your talents.



This page will be a collection of the activities you do both in and out of the classroom and any hobbies, clubs, groups, and organizations you may belong to. Examples of this would be outdoor activities (hiking, biking, physical activity), and artistic activities that could include drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and jewelry making. Interest can include any clubs and sports teams, any after-school clubs, churches, or charitable organizations.



This page can contain your address, email address, phone number, and social media account contacts for others to contact you and ask more questions. Make sure your email address is professional and appropriate for others to see. If you have an address that is silly or offensive, go to Google Gmail and create an email address that you can use just for professional purposes. The same goes for your Social media accounts. If your accounts contain any offensive and inappropriate behavior, you may want to consider removing them. Many schools and potential employers look at your accounts before making an admission or employment decision.
