October 21, 2019: Creating An Online Portfolio

UPDATE: Resources now available – including meeting slides, a handy comparison of web hosting options, and additional tips/advice – at Aaron’s portfolio here.

Come join us on the third Monday of the month, as Aaron Redshaw shares firsthand insights on the value and method of displaying your documentation work online.

“When searching for the best advice for how to become a technical writer, one piece of instruction I ran across over and over was that I had to create an online portfolio. In this presentation we will cover:

  1. Why you might want an online portfolio (even if you already have a job).
  2. What to put on it.
  3. How to use it.
  4. A short walk-through of three different easy-to-use web platforms that anyone can use to create their first online portfolio.

Included will be a handout, online access to the slides and other resources on my website, and a chance to ask questions.”
