Focus on creating a full portfolio
What is more important than lines on your resume? The pieces in your portfolio.
When I undertook my first internship, I did it because I thought it was what I should do. I missed a lot of valuable portfolio pieces and bullet points on my resume because I didn’t save the work I did or track the progress I was making.
Remember to keep track of the work you do at your internships so you can make an amazing resume AND have a full portfolio with valuable, real, major-related work.
Before I give you a list of the top resources for creating portfolios, here is a portfolio tip. At your internship, create a folder on your desktop called “portfolio.” In this folder, store everything valuable you do in PDF files. Then you can easily upload your pieces to one of these websites.
