I am in the process of preparing for interviewing and wanted to ask a few questions regarding the title.
The possible interviews are panel interviews including the floor director and other staff members. Would it be wise to create a portfolio where I can include a copy of my resume, cover letter, letters of reference, pertinent education/classes from a previous degree, certificates and pass it along them during the interview? Or should I just have 4-6 copies of my resume, cover letter stapled and pass it along before the interview?
I really dont know how to go about this issue and would appreciate your advice.
Thanks in advance,

Without a doubt, I'd take the time to set up a portfolio. I'm a new grad, so mine was relatively simple to set up. Divided it into sections one each for my resume and references, letters of recommendation, transcript, certifications ( including printing out my RN license from online), and immunizations (PPD, Hep B, TDap, MMR, Varicella, Flu Vaccine). I wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to say yes to hiring me.
IMHO it shows the floor director you're a serious candidate for the position, organizied and motivated. If nobody else does it for your position, it makes you stand out that much more.

YES YES YES. Yes. Make a table of contents for the front. Catch my theme :-D I also added a nice inservice I did for my practicum unit and a lengthy concept map.
