Work samples are particularly helpful to complement a non-traditional background.
You can add work samples to embellish your Candidate Profile (make sure to take a screenshot of the page to add it as a portfolio preview). This can include personal projects, Github repos, writing samples, certificates, or anything else that showcases your relevant skills.
This can be very useful to employers if you don't have work experience in your target industry, or if you're trying to switch fields. Many of us have special interests and passion for the work we want to do, and even self-taught skills can demonstrate your ability to be successful in a new role.
