Melinda: Ta da! I’m finally done with my portfolio. Do you want to see it?
Chad: Sure. This portfolio has samples of your work, right?
Melinda: It does, but it’s much more than that. It’s a presentation of the highlights of my career, with examples of my groundbreaking work.
Chad: Uh, okay, if you say so.
Melinda: Let me show you. The first page is a fact sheet of my major accomplishments, clients, jobs, and awards. That’s followed by a more detailed resume. And then, there are some samples of my best work, and finally, there are testimonials from satisfied clients.
Chad: But this is still a work in progress, right?
Melinda: What do you mean?
Chad: Well, your fact sheet is a half a page long. There are two samples of your work, and there are no testimonials, just a blank page.
Melinda: I admit that it’s a little thin right now, but what do you expect? I just started working in the field six months ago. This portfolio shows that there is room for growth.
Chad: Yeah, plenty of room.
