Portfolio update

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, May 19, 2014 Under: The Gospel
Hey all!

Goodness, that portfolio hasn't been updated in ages, but thankfully, it now reflects the most recent work! :D
You can check it out here.

Now, I have not updated it for various reasons, but the main one is that I simply didn't know what to include and what not to and I didn't get to it. Thankfully, it's now updated and I'm happy with it.

The selection process had mainly two focus points:
- Set forth the best
- Show a variety of skills

These simple criteria will help you pull out your best work and leave the rest to a "see more here" link. I've once seen a portfolio page that had everything on it in super small thumbnails. Don't do that. Individual images are much more comfortable to page through and will probably earn you more interest. Why? Because it's also a pain to sit and click through probably a hundred images.
 Tip: Think of yourself as having to hire someone for a specific task - ignoring skill, would you pick your portfolio page?
Important questions:
- Is it easy to navigate?
- Do you allow access for the viewer to see more if they want to?
- If you have done professional work, have you linked to it in your portfolio?

I'm no portfolio expert, but I'm happy with mine and the works are clearly visible with:
- options of seeing more
- some info on most of the pieces
- and links to some of the works in context

When re-doing, or doing for the first time, your portfolio, really try to stand back and look at it from an employer's perspective. They want to see what you can do and who you are. They may deny the second, but if you behave in an obscene way, it will most certainly affect your hire-ability.

Let's take mine for example. People have said to me it turns people off when I add GOD to my site. Well, if you knew that Heaven and Hell are real places, that the Devil is real and that JESUS is the only way to GOD, you'd add HIM too. But, because people don't know the latter especially, the former means nothing to them, despite the reality of them, so they try to push GOD out of everything. I will not fall into that category and it does cost me work, but I'd rather someone see GOD is real in the work HE does through me, than to swallow it, have you not know the truth when you die and have GOD not only be ashamed of me, because I didn't speak up, but also tell me that because I didn't speak up, millions didn't make it, so I will not be taking GOD out of the equation and I really encourage you to surrender your life to JESUS. Why? Because no matter how good we think we are, GOD owns this universe and we've all broken HIS laws. Despite good deeds, we can't make up for the sin in our lives, but because GOD loves us and doesn't want us to go to hell, HE sent us a substitute to take the punishment for us, and that person is JESUS. HE paid our fine and GOD can dismiss all the charges against us, but it is only binding if we accept what JESUS did for us. HE lived a perfect life, was crucified and died and was raised from the dead on the third day, defeating death and making available the payment of our debt.
Turn your life over to JESUS, ask HIM to forgive your sins and make HIM the LORD of your life. Live for HIM and you will not be sorry.

If you don't have a Bible, check out this link. It starts in the new testament, so you can get to start learning about WHO JESUS is first.

You can also see the Cross Allegiance website, we have a lot of videos up that will help educate and encourage you. Let us know if we can pray for you and if you've surrendered your life today, we'd love to hear about it! Also, like our FB page for more!

GOD bless you! :D



Thank YOU!!!!!!!

I'm a very outspoken Christian and everything you see here is as a result of Jesus' leading. I've been writing on a different blog for quite a while now and this is a new one, that will mainly be about this portfolio site and the work on it. I believe you will enjoy your reading here!
