The purpose of this assignment is to introduce you to your new digital portfolio site that operates on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS).
Why Create a Digital Portfolio?
The primary reason you are creating a digital portfolio is to help you showcase your work and talents to a future employer. The portfolio site is for you the employee, not you the artist, actor, or athlete. Think of it as something you would give an employer to hire you to work in the Music and Entertainment industries, or in Sports Media and Internet Marketing fields. Additional reasons you should develop a digital portfolio are:
-To brand yourself online
-Make a great first impression
-Demonstrate industry diversity
-Increase your visibility
-Add value to your job applications
-Keep track of and organize your work
Why Use WordPress?
There are many content management systems available but, to date, none compare to the power, flexibility, and usability of WordPress. WordPress CMS has become the industry standard in web development for businesses of all sizes, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders across all industries. Here are a few more reasons why we are teaching you to use WordPress for your digital portfolio:
-Powerful right out of the box
-Search engine friendly
-Safe and secure
-Lots of support
-Easy to manage
-You’re not committed to one hosting provider
-Publish content with one-click
