Requesting Consent to Use Portfolio Materials in Job Hunt
Those who make a living in the creative fields have to show samples of their work during the interview process. They include graphic artists, fashion designers, copywriters and visual merchandisers. Those who cannot do so are at a very substantial disadvantage. Though public, non-confidential information is not legally protected, that would not necessarily put a halt to legal efforts against those who use portfolio material without permission. This Model Letter asks the right questions, offers the right assurances, and makes the right requests in the right way.
