Do journalists need a portfolio?

A portfolio is a great way to showcase your skills and abilities to potential employers. It is a collection of your best work that demonstrates your writing style, reporting techniques, and knowledge of the subject matter. You can use this to show potential employers that you have the skills and experience necessary to be a successful journalist. It also helps you to stand out and gives you more control over your content and brand.

What should be included in a journalism portfolio?

A journalism portfolio should contain a variety of work samples that demonstrate a journalist’s writing and reporting skills.

The portfolio should also outline your experiences, such as the types of publications you have contributed to, a bio, your resume and any other relevant credentials.

I've been using Journo Portfolio Pro since 2017 as an undergrad and it's been an incredible resource starting out.

I recommend JP for anybody who doesn't want to spend absurd amounts of time/money figuring out domains or Squarespace/Wix.

Journo Portfolio has been great for keeping all my articles in one place. Articles on other websites can be accessed on my portfolio and I can write new articles on my portfolio website.

I love the functionality and I recommend it to all my friends.

I've had a few portfolios on JournoPortfolio for the past several years, and it's been no less than a pleasure to use this platform. I switched from using WordPress for my portfolios because this platform is easy-to-use, the customer service is excellent and knowledgeable, and it's well-priced. I'd recommend this service to anyone who needs a portfolio they can launch online quickly and edit easily.

My website has been hosted on Journo Portfolio for several years now... I find it as easy to use as my social media accounts. The aesthetics are excellent which is an important consideration for me. The best part is I’m not required to take backups or update plugins as I did tirelessly on other platforms. The time and hassle I save is priceless.

Journo Portfolio is a clean, straightforward site that aesthetically showcases my works for potential employers to review.

I can’t endorse this site enough and hope that other writers enjoy the same experiences I have had using it.

I’m a young professional, and I am glad I came across this platform.

I cannot recommend it enough.

I found JP randomly while looking at portfolio sites. I like that the editing is fast and intuitive.

Even a free account is useful, and the analytics are still available. The creation process was easy, and I built the articles outside of JP and seamlessly dropped them into the portfolio.

I host my digital portfolio on Journo Portfolio because they automatically create a back-up pdf of my work. Super important because stuff in the online world does just disappear sometimes.

Jessica Michael

I absolutely love Journo Portfolio. I had considered closely several other sites, but decided to go with Journo Portfolio and am so glad I did. It is super easy to use and looks extremely professional.

I like the template aspect, but I also enjoy that there are lots of options within the template to customize. I would highly recommend to anyone.

I created my portfolio a little over a year ago. This was the first portfolio I've ever done & Journo Portfolio made it so easy for someone not familiar with website development.

If you're a creative searching for a simple way to get your work out there, give Journo Portfolio a try!

Journo Portfolio just solved all my portfolio problems! I've tried SO many different platforms recently and nothing even compares to how easy Journo Portfolio is. If you're in the same boat, definitely check it out.

I found out about Journo Portfolio 3 years ago at the beginning of my journey as a freelance journalist. On top of being affordable and intuitive to use, Journo is amazing for multi-skilled people and whoever offers more than one service. As someone who wants to be able to showcase my work in different areas, I love how this platform allows me to do just that, but having a solid selection of templates for articles, but also having many customizable options for a variety of pages.
