Project pages are portfolio pages that give you the opportunity to elaborate on specific projects you worked on. Like showcase pages, project pages make your resume more sticky. You can link to these elaborations from your resume to make hiring managers more interested in you.
How to create a project page
You want to create at least two project pages.
There are two different ways you can create project pages: by creating a screenshare video or by writing an article. Screenshare videos are more engaging, but, if you are camera shy or can not expose details about companies you’ve worked with, you can write instead.
- Screenshare videos. This is when you walk through a project you completed in a visual way. To do this, I recommend using Loom. After making the video you can embed it on a WordPress page. Here is an example. (In this example I use YouTube instead of Loom.)
- Explanatory articles: This is when you explain the project you worked on in text. You can insert screenshots as needed. These should not be more than 300–400 words. Here is an example.
Action Step: Follow the step-by-step process in the video tutorial below to create and publish content for your project pages. Then add links to your project pages in your journal.
Note: Here is the screenshare video I created that’s mentioned in the video tutorial for this lesson.
Action Step (Optional): Post links to your two project pages in the Reply section below.
