# 2: Example Work – Adobe Creative Cloud
Due to the competitive market, employers are having to come up with different ways to identify talent and ‘pick you out from the crowd’. It is no longer just about a well written CV (although this is still very important). In addition, producing a portfolio demonstrating work and projects you have undertaken in the past, is also a must.
When building your portfolio make sure you are selective in what you include and tailor this to each role you are applying for, to ensure that you are presenting all the qualities you could bring to that particular role. A portfolio also gives you the opportunity to flesh out the points that you have made in your CV and provide practical examples of your experiences and knowledge.
Whether you are applying for a design role, marketing role or business related role a portfolio can demonstrate your talents. So what tool can you use to stand out and present your workings?
Well it just has to be…. Adobe Creative Cloud
