How to Make a Portfolio in PowerPoint
Showcase your creativity, achievements and business acumen by creating a portfolio in Microsoft PowerPoint. With the ability to embed a wide variety of media, PowerPoint portfolios can showcase visual arts, performance, research projects and business content. A digital portfolio makes it remarkably easy to feature your work to a much wider audience of potential clients and customers.
Open your portfolio with a title slide containing your name, professional summary and contact information. Your professional summary is a brief statement of your major qualifications and career goals. As an example, your title slide might read, "Experienced online marketer seeking innovative, challenging clients."
Choose the best examples of your work to showcase your talent. Show a few of your best examples rather than a larger number of mediocre ones.
Insert a photograph, video or chart to describe your accomplishments. Add a title as well as additional information such as date, organization and other key details.
Add a slide providing additional details about the accomplishment following the photo slide. People absorb visual information more readily than words, and this should be the focus of your portfolio.
Conclude your portfolio with a slide detailing your additional expertise that was not showcased in your case studies.
Save your portfolio both as a PowerPoint file and a PDF to maximize compatibility and reach a wider potential audience.
