Build up a sample portfolio

Hi all,

 

I am loooking to build an online portfolio sample of Power BI dashboards to show potential employers. Can I get some advice on projects to create, places to display, and so on? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Decide upon a few datasets and different types of reports that might be valuable in your industry, or pick from a variety of datasets from Makeover Monday if the data isn't targeted to an industry (http://makeovermonday.co.uk/data/). If you participate in Makeover Monday for only a few weeks, you'll build up a portfolio and learn a lot about how you and others can design and improve data visualizations.

 

It's okay to post on the Data Stories Gallery here on the Community site, but it's not good for a portfolio view since you cannot search for an author and get all the reports published for that author. In my case, I have my own website, where I embed "Publish to Web" reports on sample pages: https://dataveld.com/power-bi-samples/

Hi @soake 

Thanks for deldersveld to provide useful suggestions!

Besides, there are some simple guides :

1. create a online Power BI Dashboard

  • Use Power BI Desktop to connect to data sources, transform and clean data, create visuals and reports

          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-getting-started

  • Publish to Power BI Service

         https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-upload-desktop-files

  • How to create Dashboards

         https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dashboard-create

 

  • How to share dashboards/reports and ways

The Website embedding is a good idea, but what if when you leave that job they delete your reports. What would be the best way to completly duplicate your reports and send/ share with yourself (outside of your organization). And yes, my boss said I can copy everything if I wish. That I would just change any identifying information and he would approve it.

If you can afford a cheap domain (that could also double for use with a personal branding site), signup with Power BI Free and publish portfolio reports from your own tenant instead of your current org's tenant.
