Digital portfolio

In today's technical society, you should always save your work digitally, too. Scan the contents of your portfolio at high resolution and save it onto a disk. This version of your portfolio can be sent to potential employers. You can also email work-sample files instantly if requested, making your work even more accessible. Creating a convenient digital portfolio can save you from carrying the real thing to interviews. However, always check what clients prefer, as some would rather look through the original portfolio than digital copies.

Then be proud of what your portfolio holds and your confidence will communicate itself.
