The list and the examples of your work are way more important than your CV. Don’t get me wrong, clients do value formal education but, all your diplomas won’t mean much if you don’t have solid proof that you can do the job. What clients need to see is that you are moving forward, so don’t get too attached to your old examples, no matter how good they are. Do keep the best one but make sure you add fresh, relevant materials so your clients can see you for what you really are – a dynamic, innovative problem solver.
