I am looking for entry-level jobs, possibly on-campus. As I've begun searching for jobs, I've started to build a resume and portfolio. With no work experience, the only thing I have to go off on are personal projects. However, one of my strong suits are school papers - I've always done very well on them. My writing professor has suggested a couple of times that I use the papers I've written for interviews. However, I'm not sure of the best way to approach this.
Should I print them out, put them in some kind of binder, and bring them to interviews? How do I broach the subject (i.e., "Would you like to look at some things I've written?") Would the interviewer even care?
I'm not applying for a writing position or anything like that; the projects I've mentioned are web-based and can be found in an online portfolio, the link being on my resume. I've tried to emphasize how I've gained communication, organization and other types of skills through them. But I'm not exactly sure how to fit school papers I've written into the picture.
