I am a college student and aspiring graphic designer. Currently I'm trying to apply for some simple low-level graphic design positions at my college and local businesses. Of course, along with a resumé, I need to provide a portfolio of my graphic design work.
My question is how do I format this? I'm not talking about how the portfolio looks aesthetically, but how I am supposed to provide it? Do I literally just include a large image file containing an organized mass of what I've created? A pdf file of the same? Perhaps a link to a website showcasing my work? I suppose this varies from company to company, but is there a standardized (or at least most common) way that portfolios are shared? Perhaps this is a silly question to ask but I don't feel like I understand enough to ask a better worded question.
