Online portfolios are a fantastic way for college students to showcase your skills, work experience, projects, and potential for future employers. Online portfolios are also a great way to display your knowledge and interests to your friends and family. If employers are going to see your portfolio, you will want to make sure yours stands out above the rest. Portfolios can help you make a great first impression, shows you are serious about the job, and demonstrates that you are able to do technical, quality work.

The first time I created an online portfolio, I found little information on what to include in the portfolio and which website to choose from. I have now created several online portfolios to better my outlook from an employer's perspective.

You must remember that in order to create a successful portfolio, you must be simplistic, focused on objectives, and include accomplishments. This instructable shows step-by-step guidance of a remarkable way to create your own professional online portfolio for employers to view!

Disclaimer: In order to follow these instructions, you should first know how to operate computers efficiently; therefore, I have created the following instructions without extremely minor details.

Step 1: Preparation

Materials Needed
- Computer
- Internet
- All of your work to showcase (I will explain more in next step)

- Your creativity
- 2-3 hours of your time

<p>As for me, Photoshelter is the best option, when it comes to creating the perfect portfolio. I've been currently working on my portfolio. You know, I've come the conclusion that creating a stunning portfolio is a tough task that will take a lot of time and effort. This info helps me a lot - <a href="http://www.beautifullife.info/web-design/top-10-best-website-builders-creating-online-portfolio/" rel="nofollow">http://www.beautifullife.info/web-design/top-10-best-website-builders-creating-online-portfolio/</a> . My task is to show myself creative, funny, and unique:)</p>
<p>I would highly recommend taking it to the next level by using a professional platform like www.Format.com. It's easy to use and will allow you to update your resume as you gain experience, as well as give possible employers a way of getting in touch with you.</p>
<p>If you're a creative type, check out Format for building your online portfolio. Catered towards photographers, designers, illustrators and artists, it&rsquo;s super easy to use and support is available 24/7! <a href="http://format.com/" rel="nofollow">http://format.com/</a></p>
<p>If you use a free site please purchase a domain for use, the single worst thing you can do is create a website like 'portfolio.freehosting.nu.mz' etc.</p>
<p>These are all awesome options! Thought I&rsquo;d add another that personally worked for me. As a recent college graduate, I actually just used a portfolio during the interview process to get a job (I personally used <a href="http://portfolium.com/" rel="nofollow">http://portfolium.com</a>).</p><p>Showing college projects in my interview impressed my interviewers (to say the least) and they offered me a job on the spot. I can&rsquo;t suggest using the portfolio method enough!!!</p>
<p>thanks for this I have been working on this for two years now.</p>
