This is especially for those whose education and work experience is closely related to the arts; for instance if you’re a graphic designer, architect, or a photographer. The filed of journalism may also call for a portfolio consisting of your writing and past achievements.

Photography Tips: What you need to know about DSLR camera's Memory Cards

Do not blindly rely on a memory card based on its brand. I’ve once bought a highly recommended memory cards, and it broke two years after. The brands usually brag on its long life, but it’s better to focus on brands with convenient after-sale service from the memory card’s seller or producer because memory cards usually have a long warranty period.
