I saw a question posted on LinkedIn asking:
What’s the difference between a good UX professional and a GREAT UX professional?
Through the comments, I got a sense that: 
  • Good UXers base their designs on tests with real users.
  • Great UXers solve problems, instead of creating designs. They align business goals with user needs and come up with actionable user-centric solutions.
I’ve gone through many portfolios and the thing that most applicants miss is showing this problem solving skill. Sharing work like this entices others to put their trust in you, and being able to demonstrate that is really very powerful. Show how you got to the root of the problem. Take photos of what you did and who with. Here’s an example we did last year.
Thanks for supporting this issue,
