What if there are fellow students is poking you for advice and the information you are going to provide them ends up contradicting a lot of what the teacher just said. The professor just finished up a lecture strongly advocating plaster studies and still life for their portfolio to land jobs. Few of the student go, well...why does such and such do something different instead?(They point at me)
Long story short I was placed in awkward situation where I was defending why customizing a portfolio toward a job requirement might be better and some reasons it works for me. In my humble opinion I don't think casual game companies or prints shops would be interested in seeing plaster studies and still life paintings.
Is this one of those stituations where you don't be rude and contradict the dinner host?...or should you be yourself and help others with less reserve. I'm not sure.
