Becoming a Successful Software Developer

Tip #3 Make a portfolio of your software development work.

As you practice programming and build applications, compile them into a portfolio. Having a portfolio of your best work demonstrates to potential employers that you can use the skills on your resume in the real world. At a minimum, your portfolio should contain:

• Short biography

• Contact information

• Relevant skills

• Link to your resume

• Accolades or awards

• Professional and personal projects

As you gain more experience, curate your portfolio to show off only your best work. Be sure to include projects where you’ve used technologies that align with the jobs you’re applying for.

You can host your portfolio on your own domain (a way to show off your web development skills) or on a free hosting site like GitHub or GitLab.
