Well, I think a good portfolio contains a handful of
pages from each of the major projects that you have
worked on. This approach shows that you are capable
of performing a variety of skills in differing project

Still, if the position calls for a specific skill, or
the position is strongly related to a specific project
you have worked on, then sometimes I bring a copy of
the entire document from that related project. This
shows that not only did you use the skill in question,
but you completed an entire project using that skill.
The ability to prove that you can deliver a finished
project is a plus.

I wish you luck...
