Always choose the best theme, if you are a designer so you can easily make the best theme but if you don't know about designing or HTML, CSS, JS so you can download free templates and design the portfolio and enter your personal information and your skills.

2) Skills

Please mention your projects in your portfolio so people can see your projects and that's the main feature that increases your chances of getting hired in the company and also increase your salary.

6) Resume
This is the most important feature in your portfolio, add a PDF file of your resume and create a download link or button in your portfolio so that companies can download your resume and contact you and it increases your chances of getting hired in the company.

Always remember companies just want work from you that's it, so express or show off your work or your skills as much as possible.

Thank You

Never ever use percentage based skills please. For instance, you claim to know 98% of the CSS but do you really know how flexbox, position and or padding top property works? You'd say yes but chances are that you don't. These concepts, if you study in depth are a little more complex than you can think.

What if I as an interviewer don't want a person who knows only 70%? IE, what are the things that you know or don't know? I may want a guy who knows 95% but can anyone know any technology a 100%? No.

This percentage based skill showoff looks cool and a lot of newbie developers use it but it is a very very bad practice in my opinion. For senior developers with more than a decade of experience, sometimes when they switch a job, companies don't mind if they know the language they are going to work on.

These companies know that senior developers, given some time can learn the language in order to get up and working. I hope you got my point and I hope anyone reading this comment did too.

Your portfolio has some things I really like and some things that need improvement but I appreciate your effort. Keep coding and thank you for sharing your portfolio.
