Discussion: March 16, 2010 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter
In today’s newsletter a reader says:
I work as a design engineer in an industry where projects are typically confidential. However, prospective employers frequently ask to see a portfolio. I am comfortable showing one in person, where I can control its dissemination, but do not want to e-mail or send a hard copy. How do I let them know that without sounding like I’m trying to weasel my way into an interview?
How to Say It: So… your portfolio of work might help you land a great job, but showing it might also get you fired or sued.
Okay folks: Can this reader reveal the evidence of his abilities without adverse consequences? Is there some other way to leverage his portfolio without leaving it lying around?
Or, should he just spread his stuff around and stop worrying about it?
