How do you display your best work on a visual portfolio - as an audio artist? Not as challenging as you might think. Most employers are coming to hear specific things - either voice overs or soundtracks. So always keep that in mind. There are a few specific things you can do to accomplish this.
1. Label your work
Help employers know what they are about to listen to by labelling all of your work.
2. Use descriptions
What was this for? What was the client looking for and how did you help solve their problem? Most clients have a similar problem, and by telling them how you were able to help a previous client you can give yourself a better chance.
3. Make sure you have the right order
Many people post certificates on their portfolio, and that's great, but always check your profile to make sure that the audio clips are showing up on top.
4. If you do voiceover
Let your first voiceover sample be an ad to hire you!
They want to hear your voice, and this is a great opportunity to show them what you are capable of.
5. Show your different techniques and abilities
If you do voice overs, upload a variety of voice styles and accents that you can work with. If you're a soundtrack specialist, show the different genres of music you specialize in. Employers want to know everything you're capable of, so show them what you can do.
