Consider leveraging a solution for virtual collaboration like Miro.

Hello fellow account folks! Hoping to get your advice on this 🙏🏻

I’ve been asked by a hiring manager to submit a separate portfolio on top of my CV. Honestly I’ve never really done that for my past interviews, seeing my ‘portfolio’ usually makes up my CV.

Was wondering if there’s a good platform/ website that you’ve used to house your portfolio? Or is there any tips on this?

Thank you!
