Good luck, Tess. Yes, as a writer you should take some of your portfolio with you. I use a binder with sections broken down into types of manuals, Web work, on-line help, newsletters, etc., etc. You do not need to have samples in their entirety. I take a couple of printed or complete bindered items for that. Over the years, I have received excellent reviews in PC magazines plus some very nice letters of feedback from customers. I include copies of those as well. You get the idea, I'm sure. Whatever you can pull together that strengthen the case for hiring you should accompany you. I also maintain my own Web site that links to brief samples and also proves that I can create a Web site. Again, good luck

Hey everyone! My name is Tess; I'm a tech writer from Ohio. I design
websites and write a lot of content for them. I have a job interview
tomorrow for a tech/business writer position. I've never actually had a job
in the field that was 100% designated to writing. I'm pretty excited and a
little nervous. I wondered if any of you have recommendations. Should I take
writing samples? Should I take letters of recommendation? Any suggestions
would be helpful.
