Portfolio + Cover Letter in PDF

Can I attach my portfolio with my cover letter (as the first document) in the same PDF document?

When applying to jobs in the creative industry, if my experience is less than others applying, but I have a killer portfolio, I want the hiring manager to see it right away, instead of viewing my resume/cover letter and then deciding if it’s worth going on my portfolio website.

  • What are some hacks I can do on LinkedIn to look better to other connections and recruiters?

    Not so sure about hacks, but here’s some sage advice.

    The question is rather challenging in that you’re asking how to appeal to two different groups. If your main purpose is to appeal to recruiters, in that you are currently in job searching mode, your promotional copy needs to target them. Your promotional copy needs to be crafted so it attracts recruiters, lets them know you are looking for work and what you have to offer.

  • How do you hide the fact that you lost your job on LinkedIn?

    How do you hide the fact that you lost your job on LinkedIn?

     

    I don’t think you need to hide the fact that you lost your job, in your LinkedIn profile.

    Conversely, I don’t believe you need to draw attention to the fact either.

  • What's the best way to deal with a coworker who steals credit for your work and ideas?

    I suppose it depends on whether it affects you in any way. If it does, then actions may be warranted. If it doesn’t affect you directly, perhaps affecting a fellow team member, you’ll need to decide whether it’s any of your business to intervene on the other’s behalf. It may be more appropriate to support your fellow team member if they want to move forward in addressing the issue, rather than taking it on yourself.

  • No-Show Phone Interview

    Phone call womanI scheduled a phone interview for 2:30 p.m. mountain standard Time and when I went back to my email to reconfirm whereas it was 10 minutes later than 2:30 already it reads please allow for a call within 30 minutes of the scheduled time. That seems strange to me.. and now we approach the last 5 minutes of that 30-minute window and still no hide no hair no phone call. Do I reach out to them after the 30 minutes is up or do I assume that I should move on and keep looking elsewhere?

    As I am responding to this question 16 days after you have posted it, I would expect you have resolved it by now. So, my response is directed at anybody else facing a similar situation.
