VIEW Portfolio Checklist

To be considered for the HCC Outstanding Portfolio Award (monetary!), you must refer also to this checklist.

There are 4 main sections to your portfolio binder:

  1. Gallery (where you have properly labeled examples of your work)
  2. Technical Writing (where you have writing about your work, etc.)
  3. Career Documents
  4. Accolades (if you have any)
Place in the following order:

Your cover should be eye-catching without being busy.

It should include all of your contact information.

There should be a hierarchy in the text (your name being the largest, most prominent).

Use a font that can easily be read.

It should be printed on high-quality paper.

It should include the word 'Portfolio.'

Avoid putting the year/date to keep it more timely
