What is a portfolio?

Portfolios are a great way to curate and display your work in an organized, dynamic way. Users have full control of what elements will be included in their portfolios—such as images, videos, writing samples, or blog posts—and how they’re displayed. 

A portfolio can help in any circumstance where you want to make a strong impression, provide proof of your value, and differentiate yourself from your competition. See some examples below.
