It has become increasingly important for students to have an online presence, particularly now. Having a web-based portfolio site is a way to have that presence and to also provide prospective employers information about you (and a quick and easy way for you to download the necessary information for applying to some jobs). Below, you can find a guide complete with video tutorials and links to various resources, on making your own web portfolio on Google Drive.

Part 1 of 3: Getting Started

Google Sites is a relatively simple website building tool with lots of power behind it. You can link to other websites or videos and files. You can add pictures and text as needed. What makes Google Sites super useful is that it integrates well with Google Drive, so if you want to link to something, you can simply search the item you are looking for.

Part 2 of 3: Adding Content

In this part, we are going to add some more content to our portfolio site. Content can be written directly to the site, or be videos, photos, links to external sites, etc. I will start with my Home page first, then my resume page, and finally my CV page.

Part 3 of 3: Final Touches and Publishing

In this video, we will add some final touches to customize our website and then publish it.
