6. TAG YOUR SKILLS
Students are asked to tag skills to their work samples to show they are more than just bullet points on their resumes. The same applies to you! Show them how you link skills to your work.
7. PUT YOUR BEST WORK FIRST
Show your best work first! While this is a place to collect all your work samples, highlight your best accomplishments by listing them first.
