It can be tough to think of things to add, especially when you’re first starting out in the tech industry and all your previous experience seems unrelated.
If you’re not sure where to start, you’re in luck. Listed below are 27 things you can add on your portfolio or online resume—even if you don’t have a ton of experience yet. These things, when added together, can make your tech portfolio stand out. And as an added bonus, I even included real-life samples of these tips in action.

And it is perfect for the clients he going after: people who want to rank high in Google search results.
