Read Me File, is it Really Necessary for an Online Portfolio?

What is a ReadMe? 

A README file is a text file containing information for the user about the software program, utility, or game. README files typically contain instructions and additional help as well as details about patchesor updates.

A ReadMe outlines:

  • What the project does
  • Why the project is useful
  • How users can get started with the project
  • Where users can get help with your project
  • Who maintains and contributes to the project

The professionals within my career goals will know the link to my website

A lot of jobs and recruitment nowadays is online and upon any requests, I could create a ReadMe file for my portfolio but it is not necessary at this moment in time. A link to my portfolio could be placed on various social media platforms and my CV which will help clients/employers seek the work I have created and send them straight to the portfolio.
