About this course:

Getting work means getting noticed. You are your own portfolio, and your work shows up in different places, just like you do. The contemporary portfolio is a dynamic experience. Today’s designers secure jobs through social media conversations, self-initiated work, and an ever-lengthening chain of past clients. Contemporary iterations that showcase your work include those found on social media, as well as other emergent platforms, some of which are entirely open-source and others that are more controlled with templates and plenty of customization options. We’ll explore how creating a stylistic or technological niche focuses your opportunities including areas such as VR and traditional areas of advertising and studio. We’ll also examine platforms including Gather, Mandy, UpWork, traditional social media, and more as broadcast and production platforms. Jump in and with the strategic tips we’ll explore, let the connections unfold.
