Questions Frequently Asked

What is the difference between portfolio and resume?

A portfolio is the strongest proof of your skills and abilities as it allows more space to let your audience know much more about you over the shallow listings of your qualifications.

A resume is a short document that shows highlights of your background, including experiences and education, without much elaboration. From the employer's point of view, the portfolio always sounds convincing than the resume.

Who should have a portfolio?

Work portfolios were a common practice for disciplines around design and innovation. However, it is also helpful for anyone to provide value to any entity. Those include engineers, marketers, business owners, contractors, consultants, freelancers, and others who need a portfolio to showcase their working process instead of the end result.
