So I've seen two threads about bringing in printed out portfolios to an interview process. Is that really standard practice? I'm from the States and an online portfolio seems to have been enough. I'm looking for a new job (current one ends in 2.5 months) and I know in Germany, friends of mine tend to bring like little folders full of paper to interviews to prove they have this and that qualification. And here at University you get a piece of paper with a grade on it per course. So it's full of that stuff. I'm looking mostly for web stuff and applying online and submitting the link to my online portfolio (which is also on my resume) as well. Is that enough? Am I expected to also bring printouts of my work?
