In Reply to:  suggestions for portfolio books... posted by Iris on October 24, 2003 at 08:00:23:

I would keep two portfolios - one wiht only your student work, and the other with your professional experience work. That way, if the employer only wants to see what you have done recently a review can be made immediately within one portfolio without wasting time in your early work in college.

A Portfolio presenting your studio projects and any experience you have accumulated will interest the architect. The intent of your portfolio is to engage you in a conversation with your interviewer and to allow an understanding of how YOUR SKILLS and TALENTS will contribute to the needs of the firm. So show your best work first...meaning your last job. If you have IDP work completed use that as an outline of your work topics with examples to show of each area satisfied.

For international portfolio examples, see this web site for a plethora of information on various Portfolio Work, Ideas and other data:

For Individual Student Work in the USA see these examples of portfolios that would be viewed by prospective employers at this web site:

Good Luck and remember to show only your best work with a variety of skills to exhibit through the various phases of the work completed by YOU.
