It is very important for journalists to keep track of and preserve their published work by building an online portfolio, which will come in handy when they are looking to apply for a new job or simply to reflect on previous projects.

There are various platforms reporters can use to showcase their stories, and Ren LaForme recommends some in this article on Poynter, highlighting some of their most useful features.

For example if you are looking to connect with other people working in media, LaForme suggests trying Muck Rack because it serves as a great archive for your publications and “they put you on lists of media people so you’re easily findable”.

If you're a freelance journalist, he advises using Contently, as you can save an unlimited amount of articles and it can help you connect with companies and organisations that are looking for freelance work.
