Whether you’re freelancing or looking for a full-time gig, a spectacular portfolio is a must-have when you want to get hired. Sure, a great resume and cover letter are important, but if your portfolio doesn’t stand up and show off your skills, your chances of landing the job are zilch.

But even experienced designers can have a hard time keeping their portfolio up to date. It’s like the auto mechanic who drives around in an old beater because she spends all her time fixing other people’s cars. (Or like me, who spends so much time blogging and writing for amazing companies that my own personal blog has fallen by the wayside).

That’s when a portfolio template can save the day. Rather than having to start from scratch, use a pre-made template to save time and get a portfolio up ASAP. Customizing things like the color, typeface, and logo can make it stand out, but the important thing is that it puts your work front and center.

Below are 15 FREE templates you can get started with right away. Some are built on Bootstrap (a starter framework that doesn’t require a content management system) and others are for WordPress (the most popular CMS on the planet).
