I agree that asking to see a portfolio should be commonplace; I would much
prefer to talk about specific portfolio pieces: what pleased me, what I thought
still needed improvement, what elements I thought were incongruent but I had to
live with because of political reasons, and so on. Asking a person to bring a
portfolio is much different than the other practice I've heard of, where an
employer asks candidates to prepare samples using the employer's raw material as
a way of getting "free work".
