    Portfolio for interview

    I have an interview coming up next week and was told to bring a portfolio of my work . I recently finished graduate school and have been interning since. I personally do not think I have much for a portfolio . Any advice on this portfolio (what I should include, format, how many pages etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

    Congrats on the job. The provided info is pretty vague. A portfolio should be put together based on the job you are interviewing for, so with that said, what type of job are you interviewing for?
    Men do dumb $hit... it is what they do to correct the problem that counts.

    Back in the says when I applied to jobs, I would put together one-page summaries of some of the more significant projects I worked on, similar to what I now do for my business. Here are examples:
