Now that you’ve built up a solid network, the next step is getting your portfolio and resume together. For a lot of people, this is one of the most daunting parts of the hiring process.



The questions can be overwhelming if you’re new to the design field. Where do you even start? How do you format your resume? How do you get past the ATS bots? What content should you include? How do you build a website? Should you use a template? How do you write a case study?



Kristine Yuen, a design manager at LinkedIn, joins us to talk about how to craft a killer portfolio and resume to get past the ATS bots and recruiters to impress the hiring managers to get a shot at an in-person interview.



Kristine put together a list of portfolios she likes and explains a little bit about why she likes each of them:



* karindevenish.com – Kristine really likes the overall structure of Karin’s Credit Sherpa case study. It’s very thorough and visual. Her favorite section is how she shows her iterations side by side. It really helps comprehend the differences between the variations and makes it easy to follow along in her story.* yangq.design – Yang’s portfolio is a very visual portfolio that uses motion subtly. Particularly, the home page is really well laid out. It catches the attention of the reviewer quickly and it is detailed to understand what the projects are all about.* rbrahmwar.com – Paisool is a well-laid-out case study. It is visually balanced and clear in terms of storytelling. Ridhi mixes her process well with the content that she writes. She also uses a similar family of illustrations that blend well with her visuals in the rest of the portfolio. Also, the solution section at the end is very easy to comprehend the flows within the designed app.* shunweiwilson.com  – This portfolio has a wide range of projects that showcase Wilson’s background from UX to industrial design. She likes how he lays it out without taking away the emphasis from his UX work. Additionally, she enjoys his About page. It showcases a nice balance between his professional interests, experiences, and personal hobbies. Additionally, all his links are really easy to find.* rajatbagga.com – Rajat’s portfolio is a visual take on dark mode. I enjoyed seeing the visuals and motion together in his case studies. In particular Vedetarian, the motion adds a lot of delight and helps me understand the intention of his app. Also, his process is light enough to comprehend the steps without going into tons of detail.* kritikakushwaha.com/projects – Kritika’s Spark case study does a really great job of making text look extremely visual.  She uses cards and blocking as techniques to balance out paragraphs of text. She also does a good job of balancing out the digital and physical solution of her project, as it emphasizes the UI more.* rachelthinks.design – Kristine’s favorite case study from Rachel’s portfolio is the Google Buzz project. Rachel doesn’t use GIFs or videos of her solution, instead, she uses arrows in the images to show how her app works. It works really well as it’s subtle, clear, and easy to comprehend.
