Should I include this in my portfolio?

I am ID student, preparing a portfolio for internship preparation. My teacher told me that it's good to include things other than your major if you are good at it. I designed this website( graphics and layout and interface). http://www.cathaycoating.com Oh well, it's my dad's, but I like it a lot. H...

matt, it's totally different from the US. In Asia, you get the job, and are expected to produce a couple of AutoCad orthos and photoshop renderings as proposals, all in a week. Yes, that means you will do sketching, orthograph and photoshop rendering in 7 days. Tell me how you can do that well witho...

I have a question too. My school makes us do a resume, and typically it will inlude some of our works like sketches, model or rendering, so that when they show the resumes to people who want to look for interns, those people can know who to pick. Of course I am not waiting for people to come pick me...

The main reason why Asian countries can become so competitive is because they often see career as a part of their life.... I mean, leisure doesn't really exist. For Japanese, you are expected to give everything to the company. The company provides you with everything and unless you really suck, you ...

I applied for a SSN because everyother thing I apply to asks for it, such as cellphone and other services.... I know no one is supposed to ask you for your number, but they won't even answer my call if I don't give them one.

So I can work more than 20 hours a week? Like I have that kind of time...

show the development and supportinmg sketches. if your sketches had some or any relation to your 3d stuff it would be a good site.
And some people will complain about pop-ups.

Talent is important, but the right school/ teacher/ program brings out the potential of the student to the fullest.

You can have tons of talent but without anyone to show you how good you should be. Or you can have little talent but maximised by the right environment.

I had them on geocities for a while but their bandwidth is too limited. The size should be the same though.

That's what I intend to put on paper! I put it up so that I can ask for advices from people more conveniently. It's not permenant and I still have things that I want to change.

I will send physical copies of my portfolio to companies. It's more formal this way.

Singapore? Forget it.

Once my friend in NY met this woman in a bank, who teaches in Nang Yang Poly and she said," Best in Singapore!"

My friend almost said,"... and JB huh?"

Seriously, if you want to do ID in the area, perhaps look into "The One Academy" in KL, Malaysia.
