A person with a portfolio is never under the mercy with a man with mere talk. A portfolio is a very important tool in one’s business or career. They showcase a person’s best work and proof of accomplishments or work done.
Portfolios demonstrate a person/an entity’s competencies that would make them land a job or a great deal of business. Portfolios show and not just tell. If two people were looking for employment in some IT company, a person who previously worked for Google is likely to land the job than one who just worked from.
Most creatives do not know how to create their portfolios and if they do, they overload their portfolios with too many projects or put in formats not accessible on all devices hence making it hard for the client/their target employers to view them.
