I’m interested to know what some of you pros who are in a hiring position think about this, but anyone can give feedback, so please feel free.
I do have an online portfolio, but should I bring in print pieces as well? Would that make a good impression or make me look outdated? I’ve been in the business for 17 years and remember when I had to carry a book to the interview. It was a pain, but necessary. I also have a laptop, but I don’t know about bringing that in since the HM has already seen my online portfolio. For some interviews in the past, I had a PDF on my laptop showing some “extra” things that weren’t online, but I might not do that anymore — it was too much. It was just fluff and not my best work. I DO have some good print pieces though. What do you think?
