Having an online portfolio is becoming increasingly common in the museum field, but is it right for you? In this presentation, we will discuss how a portfolio can be a great asset for your career. We will explore ways to gather content and start building your own portfolio. We’ll also look at examples of different portfolio styles, as well as a case study on how a hiring committee interacted with a portfolio during the application process. You’ll leave with specific strategies on how to set up a portfolio to reflect your best work based on your audience and professional goals.
