Where Most Designers Fall Flat With Their Portfolios

If you’re looking for a UX design job, you know that having a solid portfolio is essential.
No portfolio, no job – simple as that. 
But there are countless pitfalls of the portfolio building process.
Nod your head if…

You’re confused about how to structure your case studies 
You don’t know how to tailor your portfolio around your existing experiences & projects. 

You’ve burned countless hours searching for the perfect WordPress theme or tried to fit your story within a Squarespace template
You haven’t got a clue as to what employers want to see in a design portfolio

Hi, I’m Oz Chen – the founder of UXBeginner.com and creator of the UX Portfolio Course. 
As a career transitioner, I struggled to create my first UX portfolio. I made ALL the pitfalls listed above, taking months to land my first UX job. 
At first, I had countless failures creating the design portfolio from scratch. What to write? How to structure the story? Most of how, what the heck are employers looking for anyway? 
After landing my first UX jobs and clients, and finally working 1-on-1 with UX bootcamp grads as a career coach, I’ve identified the factors that made the most difference during the portoflio building process.
As a result, I’ve developed a fine-tuned process for creating UX portfolios in less time and with higher likelihood to land interviews. 

Rob Richardson, UX Portfolio Course Graduate

“Oz made this course very simple and to the point. The task of creating UX case studies and building my portfolio doesn’t seem like such a daunting task. The resources are great and I can’t thank Oz enough for putting this course together.”

The good news is that there’s a new way create a design portfolio, that’s optimized for landing the hot UX Designer and Product Designer roles that are so in demand right now. 
It’s called The Content-First Strategy. 
Instead of wasting hours going back and forth on design details that don’t matter (we’ve all been there), use my battle-tested writing process and content templates that dramatically speeds up the creation – and quality – of your UX portfolio.

Secrets of the Content-First Portfolio Building Method
FIRST, use the right mental framework to approach the process of building a UX portfolio.
This framework is called the UX Portfolio Pyramid, which helps you build your UX portfolio with maximum focus and minimum distractions:

SECOND, use my provided templates to write your UX case study. I’ll walk you step by step how to write each case study’s beginning, middle and end. 

THIRD, learn to package your case studies individually, and into a future-proof “offline” portfolio optimal to use for UX interviews. 

I’ll also teach you neat tricks to easily turn your offline portfolio into an “online” portfolio that doesn’t require you to mess with any web hosting. 
Using this robust system, hundreds of my students have completed their UX portfolios and landed their first design jobs. 
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 
In the upcoming 2.0 update to the original UX portfolio course, I’ll walk you through how to translate all of this into a online portfolio that stands out, plus never-before-seen modules that’ll help you get the extra competitive edge for UX roles in 2019 and beyond.
