Therefore, you better act like a street smart, show the best that you have. Not every work is worth including in your portfolio. Moreover, when they see the length of the project, they realize that how involved you could have been while doing it. It is a great bonus, and things will work opposite if you prefer to show something done clumsily or sluggishly.

Put Relevant Examples:

Recruiters are simple persons but most of the times they have difficulty what profiles to be sent ahead, and which ones to avoid. So, make sure you have relevant examples to explain your work stances and projects you handled, otherwise things will look difficult for your employers and they may put your profile aside thinking it as a comical distraction. There is no great point in confusing your employers. It doesn’t work anymore. The best option is to create best portfolio.
