Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
I have been studying the web development course for a few months now and almost done with my own site. I was wondering what types of things i could include in my portfolio that would help me land a job someday. For now it's mostly pictures I have taken and my twitter and email links. I was thinking i can get it all uploaded and slowly add some cool features. But i built it all myself.
Once I am finished i will post here for all to look at.
But if anyone has some ideas of what i can make and add to my portfolio I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

If your goal is to land a job, I would think your portfolio would consist of a mix of what you are good at and what you are passionate about. If you want to design websites, include some examples of the type of work a potential employer could expect if they hired you. If you want to create code, again same idea.
I suggest you take the course on careers in the tech industry, if nothing else there is a section on marketing yourself.
Theodore Kruczek Thank you for the suggestions. I will re-watch the careers section again and see if i can get some ideas. Once i get my site live i can just keep adding features and projects. Well, time to get going on it!
