<<People seem to be using standard brand artist's-style portfolios to
hold their stuff, is this correct? I've always wondered what to use: in my
experience years ago those portfolios were big and graceless (even the ones
with the smaller 11x17 trim size, say), and they seem socially awkward.
("Here's my portfolio for you to examine" <thump>)

Envelopes, see above. Plastic folder? Shades of Calvin and Hobbes.
Manila folder? Ewww. Discrete ring binder, maybe? Would make turning
pages easier than in a portfolio, and easier to load up I suppose.>>

There's an article in the February 200 issue of the STC magazine INTERCOM
that gives advice on the matter.

<<Or is the personal web site that someone mentioned the norm, these
days? >>

I remember another INTECOM article that advised against this, because the
prospective employer doesn't want to take the trouble to go to a website.
