artifacts exemplify “key performances”
Artifacts have descriptions

Intern Recruiter – Games company
Compare credentials against hiring needs, other candidates; place candidate on specific project team
The question you face as you organize your portfolio is how to make it as customized for each audience as you can…
…while still keeping it flexible so that you can present it to another audience and get similar results!
One of the reasons we are working on electronic portfolios is to take advantage of the ability to create flexible, customized information structures on the web
With a hard-copy portfolio, you often must choose which organizational method to go with. Or, use a ring-binder to create flexibility.
On the web, you can use all four methods to your advantage!
Becoming an Engineer
While it is helpful to decide which of the four main organization schemes will most likely be the “default” path through your portfolio, you shouldn’t choose one exclusively!

This is my reflective introduction. Here I have a brief narrative which would orient my audience(s) to this portfolio, provide them with some background details, and even offer them a few links to helpful sections.

show broad range of ways to represent your personal and professional interests
reveal diverse types of document organization
provide great sources of inspiration and ideas for portfolio construction
