I've been to all the major stores that sell suits and professional attire and haven't been able to find a store that sells a leather portfolio I can take to my interview. Do you guys know what stores sell some?

I'm sure you can find one at Office Depot, Staples or any similar office supply/stationery store.

You can also buy them at some luggage stores - that's where I got mine.

I bought one and never used. I think it's not necessary, especially for women.

Not necessary at all. All schools I interviewed at gave portfolio with all their information -- perfect for carrying things. I just carried my purse and the folders they gave me.

Many guys didn't have anything other than the school-given folder.

If a p/leather forlder gives you more confidence, by all means get one -- just don't consider it a necessity!

Thanx guys and gals. I didn't get to check back on this post until now because I stormed out of the house in the morning. The guy at century 21 told me to go to staples. I got my pleather for only $9.98 and it looks great!

Good times, speter33. It;ll make you look a little more professional at your interviews. Yes, they'll give you a folder but it looks nice if you come prepared with something to write on.

That's true, if it would be beneficial. But I don't think it is.

In fact, walking around campus with a suit and tie already will make you look like a tool, so why add this on top of it? It's like the people who take out their Palm and look at it every 5 minutes.

Living life always thinking about what others think of you is not the way to go. As long as it makes you feel more confident it's worth it.
