Leverage your LinkedIn profile to serve as your portfolio

Why are portfolios important for anyone who produces digital media? Proof before purchase! In a field where anyone can claim to be a designer and offer up their services via freelance, your examples of previous work will make you standout to potential clients.

LinkedIn recently added the ability to attach media and/or links to each job experience entry on your profile. Use it! Upload screenshots of your websites, e-mail marketing blasts, social media accounts and more.
