Have you ever looked through the portfolio of one of your idols and experienced a combination of awe… and imposter syndrome?
If you’re freelancing, looking for a job, or just trying to build up your expertise in an industry, putting a great portfolio on the Internet is key. Word of mouth is a great tool for getting your name out there, but a building a freelance portfolio website will make you stand out in a potential client or employer’s mind.
But if you’re new to your field and it feels like it will take years to build up a collection of work you’re proud of, then one of those beautiful portfolios might seem way out of reach.
So what can you do if you’re caught in a catch-22 where you can’t get more clients without a portfolio to share, and you can’t stock your portfolio without more clients??
Well, you can take a deep breath for starters. Even if you only have a few projects under your belt, YOU can create one of those envy-inducing, client-bating portfolios.
