Finally: Linkedin now let’s you display your portfolio.
It seems that all of us, and every designer we know, is on LinkedIn. Why? Its the defacto professional directory, and its where our peers, big companies, agencies, and clients connect with us.
But there has never been a way to showcase our portfolio work on our LinkedIn profiles.
For over a year, Behance has been working with the LinkedIn folks to develop a special application within LinkedIn that allows ANY creative professional to showcase their multi-media portfolio.
The new “Portfolio Display” application allows anyone to create a free portfolio, display it on LinkedIn, and keep it in sync across other sites like AIGA, the Art Director’s Club Young Guns site, and the Behance Network. (YAY!)
You can create unlimited projects (with unlimited images, videos, multimedia) and upload them, via the Behance Network, to display on their LinkedIn profiles.
The application allows the 70+ million LinkedIn members – as well as hundreds of millions of visitors – to ACTUALLY SEE your creative work (rather than just read your resume).
If you are a creative professional on LinkedIn, you should join the Behance Network and then sync your portfolio with LinkedIn.
If you are already a member of the Behance Network, simply install the Creative Portfolio Display application on your LinkedIn Profile.
This is fantastic! Hat tip to Mattias and Scott of Behance.
