TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I think that this is where a good set of commentaries that explain the
examples help. Besides your portfolio doesn't have to be a binder you carry
around. Its a collection of your work. could be in a box, or what ever.
"They keep making me do stuff" - student complaint
Very true. And on the flip side, I have no garantee
that you were the one who created these documents, and
for all I know, you studied up just enough to talk up
the samples you provided. So, until you can prove your
abilities outside the shell of your portfolio, it's
all just smoke and mirrors.
(because life is too short to be inept)
"As soon as you hear the phrase "studies show",
immediately put a hand on your wallet and cover your groin."
