can't tell you how many times a "younger" just fresh out of school candidate blows it in this area. They need to be prepared to talk about their work in regards to what was the objective, how did they approach and solve the design problem, what inspired their design/creative approach, etc. They need to be fluid in their explaination and realize the work itself isn't enough, regardless of how talented they are.
The second point of portfolio presentation is to be honest about what they did if it's related to actual work done in a previous or current job. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the same portfolio pieces from several candidates who claim they were the art director, which I know isn't true. Someone concepted and directed it, someone else attended and directed the photo shoot (if that's the case) and someone did the production and layout for final review. Tell me what role you played and don't think that I don't know that typically it's more than one person involved in the work. A lot of candidates blow it here, or just show me the work and hope I think it's good. Tell me what role you played in the work. That's what I want to and need to know.
