I have a couple of questions. Say, in the hypotethical, a-hem, case that I
were to prepare a IxD portfolio that could be presented to a US employer.
There would be some cultural differences (I'm european) and I would want to
steer clear of the worst mess-ups.
1. Where I am from, its expected that you are somewhat modest and you expect
that the reader "reads between the lines". This is of course just a social
contract. Same or different in the US?
2. What about tone of voice? I'm not going to be flippant, but how dry do I
have to be?
3. How big? As I'm collecting examples and screendumps, this is growing.
"Hey, we did some nice work on this one", etc, etc, you get the picture .
Should I limit the portfolio to a handful of examples?
Any other big no-no or yes-yes?
(I have read the previous discussions about portfolios on this list and they
were great. Very helpful.)
