Set yourself apart by showcasing your work in a neat and organized presentation portfolio. Simply organize your work by project, type or year using Avery Index Maker® Clear Label Dividers. These clear labels give your dividers a professional, printshop-quality look and feel you can easily create yourself. Then put it all together in a customized Avery Signature Binder, and you’ll make an impact from cover to cover.

Don’t forget the follow up

Now that the interview’s over, will you sit back and wait for that phone call that may or may not come? Or will you make yourself unforgettable with a thank you note to the interviewer? You’ll earn kudos for following up your interview with a personal thank you card. Expressing your appreciation for the interview not only demonstrates common courtesy, it displays your enthusiasm for the job and gives the employer something to help remember you. Put together a memorable thank you with an Avery Note Card and Avery Design & Print Online, add a handwritten message and finish it up with a personalized address label. Consider Avery Easy Peel® Clear Address Labels for that professional, printed-on look—and your thoughtfulness and extra effort will be clearly evident.
