I am a recent grad, employed at a consulting firm where I worked during grad school. I never really set up a good portfolio following school, since I already had a job, but I'd like to create one, since eventually I will be leaving my job (especially since nothing is secure in this economy). Any suggestions for how to layout a portfolio? There are certain projects that I am very proud of (both academic and professional), but do you include the entire report? It seems silly to me to just stick a few pages into a portfolio. I will also be included several GIS figures, and a few brochures. Is it bad to keep older work in there, or only recent projects?
So I guess basically, the question I'm asking is: What do you keep in your portfolio? How often do you update it?
