Build an Effective UX Portfolio - Online Class

I just created my second class on Skillshare. It focuses on building a portfolio, which I know is a challenge for many UX newsbies. 
If you are a student, career changer, or need an updated portfolio for your next job search, this class is for you.

Managing your portfolio during an Interview

I had a somewhat negative experience during an interview last month, but I partly blame myself.

I had worked on a website redesign and showed some wireframes during the interview.  Well, the site had then been redesigned after my redesign and this all occured in the span of less than 6 months according to my guesstimate.

I was asked why the site had been redesigned after my redesign and all I could muster was "I am not sure".

I partly blame myself because I was unaware of the succeeding redesign.

But what would have been an acceptable answer?

PS: I do not come from a design background.

Thanks.

Building your online site/portfolio all over again

If you were to do your professional site or online portfolio all over again, would you take the same approach? Would you use the same tools?

Would you use something like Google tools to simplify site development and maintenance?  Would you use Wordpress tools that have CMS and blog features built-in?  Would you build it from scratch (with HTML/CSS or Dreamweaver)?  Some other tool/approach?

What are some of the pros and cons you've experienced putting a site together to market yourself?

Portfolio critique for graduating Interactive Media Designer

As tough as it is to open yourself up to public mockery, I'm graciously asking for a your professional feedback on my portfolio site, http://ernies3.com

I'm graduating next Thursday and will be presenting my work during a portfolio show. I figure - you're my people, so at the end of the day the feedback I get from you will be exactly what I need to stay pointed in the right direction. 

(I'm aware of and correcting some "issues" in the UI/Fast Food Web App prototype)

Thanks all,
Ernie S.

Design Thinking Portfolio

I am caught up in the NDA and out dated portolfio dilemma.  I am not able to show my best work or recent work because of non-disclosure agreements or the fact that things have been re-designed or are just not current.

I was wonerding if it would be acceptable to create new deliverables.  I do not have any paid mobile experience, so I wanted to start with that.

Are employer's more interested in the way I think, rather than what I have been paid to do in the past?

New to the field-- Advice?

Hey guys,

My name's Noah Ruede, and I'm a 22-year-old aspiring Interaction Designer.

I spent three years studying Communication at Rutgers University before learning about IxD. I was immediately fascinated by the field, so much so that I have decided to transfer instead to CUNY City Tech's "Emerging Media Technology" major, with the Media Design concentration on the Interaction Design track.

Great agency portfolios and metrics?

does anyone have examples to share of great agency portfolios? I've found a lot of info in the archives about personal portfolios, but I'm interested in seeing what other companies are doing to promote their work. I'm not interested in really flashy, artsy portfolios - more about the data. what kinds of metrics are companies providing to show the value of their work? how are they telling their stories in compelling ways? thanks in advance for any suggestions!

The NDA Barrier

I have really had this day with a recruiter, going back and forth regarding work samples.  I am relatively new to the UX field and I do not have the 5+ years of experience that so many job postings are requiring!

I only have a few deliverables that are not protected by a "non-disclosure agreement" or "not to be shown without specific written consent of <"blank">.  I understand I won't make any headway with this recruiter, though I am perplexed at her attempt to even try to understand my deliervable's, since it has been clear they are very foreign to her!
