Fantastic e-portfolio Tool Integrated with LinkedIn
I recently discovered (accidentally) a great e-portfolio service integrated with LinkedIn – it’s from Behance and called the Creative Portfolio Display. The application is not particularly new, having been launched in late July, but it was under my radar and seems to have low awareness amongst students that I speak to.
Nonetheless, as someone who is a big advocate of e-portfolios, this looks like a great service and a genuinely useful collaboration between LinkedIn and Behance, the e-portfolio platform. This is significant as we are seeing the number one professional networking site joining forces with the top e-portfolio platform. In a nutshell, LinkedIn has the numbers and Behance the tools to really benefit collaborators and users alike.
From my perspective, I know that employers like to see graduates on LinkedIn and Creative Portfolio Display enables users to showcase their best work – something which is sure to support their application and boost their Personal SEO. Best of all, this service is free.
Whilst, I’ve not used Behance personally (except for a quick experiment), I know many who sing its praises within the creative industries. Although, this service is not going to replace personal websites, blogs or CVs, it certainly looks like another great tool to manage and leverage your online reputation and showcase work.
