I went out a bought a very elegant leather bound 3-ring binder portfolio, sheet protectors and some bright white quality paper. This weekend I plan on printing out projects that I have completed, that I think really showcase my skills. And put them together with the items from the following list.
- Cover Letter
- Professional References
- Unofficial transcripts from school
- Course Descriptions from school
- Examples of work from each area of programming in my resume
- Awards / Honors
- Letters of Recommendation
What components do you have in your professional portfolio?
Is there something more that should be included that I may have missed?
Did you do anything special with your portfolio that makes it different from everyone else's?
