How to write a resume and a portfolio competently
First of all, you need to determine the difference between the two types of your presentation materials. So, the resume is a fairly short list of your work and educational activities: a description of experience, education, personal qualities. Portfolio is a broader personal characteristic of yours, where not only your experience and education is registered, but all talents, achievements, concrete merits. Also in the portfolio should be spelled out and motivation for activities, which is also an important point.
In order to competently draw up a resume and portfolio, you need to clearly write down your work experience in chronological order. At the same time for a successful resume and portfolio will be a plus, if you add in addition to dry dates and company names, also your personal merits and a brief description of your responsibilities in the organization (1-2 sentences).
Further, when writing a resume and a portfolio, you must indicate your education. Do not be afraid to indicate all additional courses and internships. This will significantly increase your chances of getting a job. Also, when describing higher education, you can specify the topic of your thesis work, especially if it has a similar direction with your future work activity.
Also in the resume, you can specify more parameters such as additional competencies and skills, your personal qualities, contacts. A detailed resume often increases the credibility and chances of the candidate. But do not overdo it, because in some companies, for example, in international, detailed summaries are not accepted. So this resume can simply alienate the employer or even leave it without attention.
For the portfolio, the moment of a detailed description of your motivation is important, that is why it is so important for you to get this particular workplace or why you should get a grant or an opportunity to participate in the event. Here it is important to say the words of the employer, the grantor. In this case, you should also try to fully describe the benefits of your participation in the project or in this event.
