Land high-paying opportunities with a stand-out portfolio.

Whether you’re trying to break into the field, land freelance clients, or secure a higher-paying job, a great portfolio will help you get there.

It's tough to stand out without a great portfolio.

Instructional designers without strong portfolios often feel frustrated and overwhelmed when searching for jobs or clients. There's a lot of competition—and, without a strong portfolio, it's tough to set yourself apart from the crowd.

Say hello to opportunity.

When you do have a great portfolio, you don't have to worry about finding opportunities. Landing interviews becomes the norm, and clients come to you to see if you're available for freelance work.

Better yet, a great portfolio establishes you in the field and builds your credibility. It shows off your skills and helps you get noticed. In short, it puts the instructional design job market on easy mode.

eLearning Developer at Sephora

I joined Devlin’s Bootcamp because I wanted to seriously up my game and land my dream role in the eLearning industry. I felt this was the right move because I not only wanted to build a solid portfolio—I also wanted 1-on-1 support and good critical feedback on my work.

Devlin was instrumental in helping me develop a killer portfolio and giving the kind of feedback I was looking for to truly improve. In the end, I was able to garner an amazing E-Learning Developer position at Sephora, an international beauty brand that not only aligns strongly with my own values, but that I’m also a huge personal fan of. I couldn’t be happier with the way this all turned out, and I’m sure that I wouldn’t be where I am without Devlin’s guidance and coaching.

Go further with 1-on-1 support

The bootcamp includes 1-on-1 meetings with me, Devlin Peck, to get personalized portfolio feedback and coaching. Your success becomes my success, and I'll be there to help you every step of the way.

Join a community of driven IDs

Network with an exclusive community of instructional designers that are driven to succeed. Inspire one another, get feedback, and build long-lasting professional relationships.

Connect with the group via the weekly workshops, study hall sessions, bootcamp team meetings, and private Slack workspace.

Create your flagship project

Most instructional design projects are hidden behind NDAs, and if you're just getting started, then it's hard to come up with good project ideas.

The bootcamp will help you create a project that shows off the full range of your instructional design skillset and solves a real-world problem.

This project will show employers and clients that you know your stuff, and it will give you a strong framework that you can use to ace interviews and land work.

Before joining the bootcamp, I was a full-time student in an instructional design certificate program. As I was trying to get my ducks in a row to land my first ID job upon graduation, I quickly realized that I would need some guidance to develop a professional portfolio; I wanted to create one that would make me a competitive candidate.

Devlin’s bootcamp provided just that—and more! Through the skills I developed in this bootcamp and the support I got from my cohort, I was able to confidently land my first freelance gig before even graduating!

Joe Stuben
Curriculum Developer at Amazon Web Services

When I first met Devlin, I was a tenured professor at a research university and felt trapped in my job. I wanted to transition into corporate instructional design, but I lacked the concrete, nuts-and-bolts knowledge of how to fill in my skill gaps, build a portfolio, and pitch myself in a job application.

With Devlin’s 1-on-1 support and guidance, I went in six months from never having heard of instructional design to landing an ID role at Amazon Web Services. So many exciting doors have opened for me, including career progression, geographic mobility, healthier work-life balance, and better pay.

Meet your instructor

I started my freelance business as a master’s student, and by focusing on my portfolio, I quickly began closing over six figures in sales per year. Using what I learned, I helped many of my friends and peers land high-paying jobs and clients.

Now, after refining my portfolio-building approach, I've scaled my help with the ID Portfolio Bootcamp. I know what hiring managers and potential clients are looking for, and I share everything that I know in this bootcamp.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I have access to the bootcamp?

Once you enroll in the bootcamp, you have lifetime access. This includes all ID Portfolio Bootcamp updates. Your access does not expire :)

Is there a money-back guarantee?

The bootcamp is backed by the Devlin Peck Promise. If you do not see results after committing to the bootcamp and creating a great portfolio website, then I will give you a full refund.

What background knowledge is required?

You do not need any background knowledge to enroll in the bootcamp, but you will need to learn some knowledge and skills on your own to get the most out of this program. Within the bootcamp, I recommend a learning path to become employable. However, keep timeline expectations realistic if you are coming into this program with little background knowledge.

What is the weekly time commitment?

You will get out of this program what you put into it. The more time that you have to engage with the bootcamp and learn, the better your final projects and portfolio will be. That being said, you should plan to commit anywhere between 5 and 20 hours per week to building your portfolio.

Is the bootcamp only for instructional designers?

The bootcamp is for instructional designers, interpreted broadly. This includes eLearning designers and developers, learning experience designers, learning and development specialists, and anyone else looking to secure opportunities in the instructional design and eLearning space.

What if I cannot attend the weekly workshops?

The weekly workshops are on Wednesdays at either 10 AM, 3 PM, or 8 PM EST. You will also be part of a smaller bootcamp team, and your team can work together to find a time that works for everyone. All main workshop recordings are available same-day.

What is the timeline for creating a portfolio?

Since everyone's time commitments and starting points vary, it depends on how much time you can commit to the program. Generally, it will take you between 3 and 6 months to get a portfolio (with projects) live and start landing better opportunities.

What should I do if I have additional questions?

You can send any additional questions my way by emailing me at Let me know if you would like to set up a 30-minute call to discuss your needs and determine if the bootcamp would be a good fit.

How many 1-on-1 sessions are included?

You can schedule two 1-on-1 coaching sessions. However, I provide a great deal of asynchronous feedback and support via direct messages and bootcamp comments. Your success is my success, so if we need to hop on additional 1-on-1 calls, then I will do so at my discretion :).

As I was finishing up my master's degree, I felt uneasy about the corporate job search. I reached out to Devlin because I wanted to put together a portfolio that would help me get hired, but I also wanted to learn the tools of the trade so I wouldn't feel like a fish out of water after getting the job.

Devlin's support, coaching, and feedback helped me learn the right skills, create a portfolio, and build my confidence as a professional ID. I was able to land a great job in the city I wanted to move to with a salary that exceeded my expectations.
