Portfolio Building With Mock Projects

Create mock project samples to build your portfolio. Browse project postings and try to do what the project description is asking for as if the job is yours. It is a great way to practice your skills, and to build your portfolio. (I also use this method when I want to apply to a project when I don’t have a specific sample to offer. I also ask if clients would like me to create a fresh custom sample for them to see my work. If I don’t get the job, I can still use it in my portfolio, but that usually sells my services.) It works best if there are specific details described.

Even if you don’t intend to apply to the specific projects that you create samples for, project listings can be a wealthy resource of topic ideas, and it can help you expand your view of the different type of projects you can try in the future. It is a good way to bulk up your portfolio and practice your skills.
