How to quickly decide what to put in your portfolio and what to take out. Tailor your portfolio to fit the job you most want.
You've been working as a graphic designer for a few years. You don't have to be "officially schooled" in design, but you need a working knowledge of print and multi media. Your working knowledge doesn't have to be extensive, but you know where you want to go with graphic design and why.
