You have probably seen “Your Portfolio Starts Now” in your classrooms, but what does it mean and why should you do it?
In this podcast, Jeremy Hockett speaks with Full-time Faculty member Nancy Zeller about the importance of beginning a portfolio early on in ones studies. We discuss setting up an account to store and share your portfolio, and why it is a beneficial tool both while attending and after graduating from school. We explore some of the options students have for the hosting of portfolio material. Nancy Zeller explains how she has used such resources in her own professional career. How might a professional online portfolio foster meaningful networking and productive "marketing"? What should one include in a portfolio? Ultimately, for students in the arts, a professional portfolio is a “visual resume” that documents the skills and creativity of an artist or designer. It is perhaps the most important element of success in your field.
