Making a Portfolio Website Using Google Sites


Now more than ever, students need to have an online presence particularly for applying for jobs and meeting prospective employers. In the YouTube playlist linked here, students will receive a comprehensive 30-minute crash course in using Google Sites to make a professional-looking portfolio website that they can use in interviews and applications.

Google Sites is a relatively simple website building tool with lots of power behind it. Students can link to other websites, videos or files. Pictures and text can be added as well. Google Sites is very useful since it integrates well with Google Drive, so if students need to link to something they have in their Drive space, they can search the item they are looking for. There are also some best practices and quick tips to help make their portfolios better and more engaging for the profession they are looking to make a career in.
