Does my UX portfolio need to be online?

Yes, it’s highly recommended. Preferably, with your own website URL. PDF’s, Dropbox, and other online platforms don’t provide the flexibility to showcase any interactivity, videos, or prototypes that you will need to explain your work.

What if I don't have any real world experience in UX?

Look for opportunities local to you, to help. For example, try your local museum, non-profit, or local business that you think has an experience that can use your UX expertise. Check out this guide to learn more.

I don't know how to code, how do I put a portfolio online?

Try Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, Strikingly, or WordPress. Any of these options can work for you to put your site together without code. If possible, try to secure a domain name, so your site looks more branded, and personal to you and your work.
