What are they really looking for in a Portfolio?





What Employers Want to See: A Closer Look





  • Structured Presentation: 


Employers are drawn to organized, well-structured content.
Your Portfolio should be clean, easy to read, and visually appealing, with ample white spaces between sections.
A messy layout might convey disorganization and a lack of attention to detail.





  • Strategic Use of Keywords: 


Employers focus on specific keywords and key phrases in Portfolios and Resumes.
Tailor your content to include relevant keywords related to your expertise, emphasizing your skills and experience.
Prioritize these keywords based on their importance to the job you seek, ensuring your portfolio aligns with Employer expectations.

After finding the keywords Employers were looking for, they will proceed to match the Keywords with the Systems/Software and Experience description you have listed.


Example Keyword: Bookkeeper, Accountant, Invoicer

Example Sub Keyword: Quickbooks Online, Entering Bills, Reconciling, Collector

Example Sub Keyword Skills: Communication, Number person, Trustworthy


Distinguish all the keywords that are important for you to get the job, and list them by priority so that you can find out what keywords relate to your experience and where to focus.

How to find out what keywords are Employers looking for? It’s simple, take a look at their Job description.





  • Highlighting Systems/Software Proficiency: 


Showcase your expertise in relevant Systems, Software, and Tools you’ve used.

Employers would verify your expertise for the keywords you used by looking at the Systems/Software/Tools Section.




  • Experience Description: 

Provide short descriptions of how you implemented these tools in your previous roles, demonstrating your practical knowledge and skills. 

Employers seek tangible evidence of your capabilities.

List the most relatable roles and give details.

For Example, you are a Bookkeeper and you use the keyword Quickbooks Online (in Tools), then in the experience section you will add a description of how you used QuickBooks Online as a Bookkeeper or related, for what purposes, where you trained, did you earn certification, are you self taught. 


  • Experience Section 

List your relevant work experiences, starting with the most recent one.
Include the Company name, your job title, duration of employment, and specify the country and industry of the Employer. Provide brief descriptions of your roles, emphasizing your achievements and contributions.

  •  Education, Training, Certification: 


These should be on the top of your portfolio or highlighted. 

Highlight your education, training, and certifications related to the job you’re applying for.
If you lack formal education, emphasize your training and self-study efforts. Employers value continuous learning and adaptability.

  • Who is most likely to look for an Education and who would not? 


Employers in the higher tech or medical fields that require a License or expert knowledge in the field or the jobs that needs to be done, will look for Education and make it mandatory.

Employers with Jobs where the skills can be improved, trained, and gained, will focus on your willingness, and experience and not Education.





  •  Professional Summary: What can you do for them?


Start your Portfolio with a concise, well-crafted professional summary.
Clearly articulate how you can address the Employer’s needs and solve their problems.
Avoid self-centered language; instead, focus on your ability to provide solutions.


Sort and well-crafted.
After reading this some Employers will stop and immediately invite you for an Interview.


Every Employer that is looking to hire, means they have a problem that needs to be fixed.

They are not looking for someone who likes sports or it’s very open-minded, those are not the first attributes you should mention in order to get a job or fix a problem.

Share your work principles, hourly rates, and availability for discussions. 

Approachability and flexibility make you more appealing to potential Employers.
