Subject:Portfolio questions From:Jean Ann Harrison <harrison -at- SOFTBRIDGE -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 28 Dec 1998 19:23:41 -0500
Thank you for all your great suggestions. I have some new ideas to try
and I feel like I will be making some constructive efforts towards my goal.
It's a great feeling.
I do have a question about portfolios. Does anyone have any suggestions
about constructing one for a newbie? I do have writing samples but
wondered how to present each one. Is there a suggested format? How many
samples do you include, how long are each of the samples?
Thanks again for all your suggestions. Please send information to:
harrison -at- softbridge -dot- com if it isn't appropriate for list discussion.
