Profile Picture – professional and creative
A great professional picture is great and shows first impressions when speaking with potential hires. You don’t have to be an anthropologist or a body language expert to know that warm, friendly profile images help build the human connection and make you better identifiable when looking through multiple profiles.
Your Portfolio, and Case Studies
Wishu provides you with a great section in your profile where you can post all your portfolio posts. These portfolio posts give potential clients fantastic insight into the breadth of your experience and expertise.
If you would like to showcase your videos and animation work, please use links to direct clients to your portfolio website or Vimeo. Videos are coming to Wishu very soon!
Executive Summary aka Bio
This is our guide to the crucial bio that all freelance creatives need on their profiles. Every creative has had to tackle their professional summary.
We’re not talking about the “About Me” page on your site, nor your LinkedIn summary. The professional summary is its own beast – and is really popular, and crucial on many new platforms like Wishu aimed at matching freelancers with work opportunities.
“A professional summary is your ten-second elevator pitch,” explains Dana Leavy-Detrick. “It’s your best opportunity to convey a quick branding message: who you are, what you’ve done, what your expertise is—and, importantly, what you can bring to the table.”
