Greetings fellow forum-person,
A hiring recruiter messaged me and said, “…your background and experience appear to be a great fit for this position…” (Yes, I am aware that this was a copy+pasta’d message)
I looked into the company and they looked to be reputable (It turns out that they are a child company of Cox Automotive - a big name in the car industry.) I responded saying that I was interested in learning more and asked if needed any “additional information or documents” from me.
He replied today (Monday) and said, “Great! Please send me your resume and portfolio for our team to review and I will let you know next steps…”
1st of all, I do have a resume to send him.
2nd of all, I do not have a portfolio ready for him. (I just have a collection of stuff on my Google Drive)
[3rd of all will be in the ‘Post-Script’ (‘PS’) section of this post.]
I would like to give him what he needs in a portfolio from me, and I feel like I need to do so in a timely manner In my mind, “a timely manner” would optimally mean today, yet would be permissible to give something to him by tomorrow tomorrow as well.
So my questions for you are:
- What is “a timely manner” for these situations?
- What do I put in a portfolio?
- Should I consider counting this as a missed opportunity I cannot make a decent portfolio in “a timely manner”?
A big thanks for anybody willing to give me some thoughts on this situation.
