Having discovered the importance of a portfolio in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) profession, we hosted an event tagged "How to create a portfolio using WordPress" on the 4th of September, 2022. Omowunmi Olawehinmi a Product designer with over a year experience creating user-centred designs and a member of the YALI Network and the Women Techsters Fellow '2 shared a practical example of how a portfolio gives you a dedicated personal space to promote your skills, services and previous work which could also be referred to as your shop window on the internet , that is after you build your portfolio site, potential clients will be able to easily find you, see exactly what you do, learwhowhat whou offer and feel confident in hiring you. The practical session centred on designing a portfolio and deploying WordPress. To design a portfolio, it is necessary to select the best website. The Envira Photobuilder tool which was used in building the portfolio displays your work dynamically online and doesn’t require extensive coding. This is why word press is highly recommended because it helps in creating a responsive website, after which selecting a domain name and other necessary steps follow. Remember, having a portfolio will empower you to look more professional and distinct from everyone else, build a brand that represents the value you propose and Impress prospects who are looking to hire you.
