    There are a few forms...

    Printed form and digital form...

    You can actually create your own on the net with a simple hosting site such as Flickr and then link them over to a website to lay them out nicely...

    The main idea is to showcase YOUR BEST works...

    Are you bring a laptop for your interview? If not printing it out would be a better option, else you need to bring a thumbdrive instead....

    Why not just provide the URL for your portfolio on your resume?

    if you want a hard copy portfolio, it is very expensive.

    this is the old school way.

    select the best twenty of your works,

    carefully check thru every inches of your images.

    send it for printing,

    8x10 or 8x12 are too small, 10x12 or 10x15 is fine.

    also get it laminated, use only the best lamination you can find

    after this than find the best mounting board,

    mount your print on the mounting board, leave at least two inches borders.

    buy a portfolio case which can fit all twenty pieces.

    the whole portfolio case is very heavy, in term of cost and weight.

    and you should spend about three to four hundreds for this.
