I am back again after a brief absence. I have recently started receiving
messages again after a gap of almost a month; something was wrong
with the network.
The thread on 'portfolios' caught my attention and I would like to know how
one compiles a portfolio and what should be its contents?
One hears of writing samples. Are these short pieces extracted from a
previously done work (manual, help, etc.) or does one specifically write them?
During my short career I have worked on quite a few projects, some big and
some small, in various capacities from writing to supervising to usability
Now the question: How do I compile a portfolio?
Please answer me directly as I do not know whether this will interest others.
