"Think of portfolios like the filler stuff in sandwiches. A résumé is like the bread and meat of the sandwich -- simple and gets the job done. The filler stuff, like mayonnaise, lettuce, mustard, and cheese, make the sandwich more fulfilling and last longer. Employers are going to remember the things you include in your portfolio longer than they'll remember what you've put in your résumé" (Dunneback, 2004).
“A portfolio is an organized collection of documents that showcase a person’s work, skills, and career progression.” (Saunders, 2003, p.54).
