How to Build a Portfolio

March 16, 2010

The internet has greatly reduced the amount of effort it takes to build a portfolio. All that is really necessary now is a profile on any social networking page. Linked in, Facebook, and My Space all have the capabilities of being used as an online profile.

Where Can I Write

Finding a place to write is easier than ever before. There are a staggering amount of online freelancing websites. I have added a few reviews on the resources page of this blog

Write for the Chicago Tribune

For writers in the suburbs surrounding Chicago, TribLocal will publish work pertaining to almost any local topic. You do not get paid from TribLocal, but you have the chance of appearing in print in the local insert for the Chicago Tribune. It is nice to be able to show prospective clients and employers work that has been edited by such a prestigious newspaper.

The most important thing is that you are writing. Even if you are not building a portfolio, writing is the only way to improve your writing skills
