I have been reading through the thread that began as job interview question: ethical questions, which has generated some discussion about how interviewers use portfolios.

This is a good question, and seems to involve a couple of things. Do you provide copies of work to leave with the potential employer, do you bring work that has been re-edited and possibly reformatted for portfolio use, does the interviewer read or scan, etc.

My question is, does anyone put their portfolio online? Do you think this is a good/bad idea? Coming from a web background and looking for work in the web industry, it seemed to me like a natural thing to do. However, perhaps there are issues that in my inexperience I have not considered (although I have long been a technical communicator, this is my first "tech writing" job search).
