I finally put my portfolio on a CD with a nice cover and some CD art and
I have my recruiter get the client a copy before the interview. I had
often felt that I could have interspersed a few pages of Dr. Seuss in
the middle of some of the samples I was handing out and no one would
have noticed! People just don't seem to want to look at that stuff
during an interview, and afterwards it's often irrelevant - they either
like you or they don't.
