ONLINE PORTFOLIO

For "creative" positions (copywriter and graphic designer): A resume is truly secondary to the work that you present in your portfolio.


For writing-intensive positions
: You will benefit from an online portfolio (created using a website like WordPress, Pressfolios or clippings.me) that includes samples of your writing, such as blog posts, published articles and/or press releases (depending on the nature of the positions you are targeting). You should provide a link to this website on your resume.

VIDEO "REEL"

For videographer and production positions: Videographers and producers need to have a “reel” of work that they conceptualized, filmed and produced. The videos should be posted to a website for easy viewing. Resumes are more of a formality after evaluating the person's reel.
