OK, so I'm getting old and don't know all of the ins and outs of current technology. After the first 18 years of my career in the public sector, I've spent the last 7 as a consultant and have put together a nice body of work. Now I'm thinking of getting back in the job market (must be old - is this a sign of dementia?) and want to be able to share examples of my work with prospective employers.
Can anyone recommend how to do this? I've searched the threads in this forum and I don't see anything related to software, etc. needed to create a portfolio. I also see that some create them in HTML for personal websites. I don't really want to do it that way, since I want to control who sees the portfolio (and I don't want to advertise to my current employer that I am seeking other opportunities).
I know that newer versions of Acrobat have a tool to aggregate .pdfs into a single "portfolio" but (if I understand it correctly) this requires the reader to have a version of Acrobat, and the user interface in Acrobat is kinda chunky and unattractive. Is there any other program out there that lets you create a file that "holds" your work examples and resumes and lets the reader "link" to them from an attractive home page? Or is there a way to make Acrobat do this in a more elegant way?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
