However, I do disagree with some of Martijn’s advice, especially where he says to not tailor your portfolio to the job at hand because you might not understand the role perfectly. I disagree.

Thanks for the shout out Sebastian! Such a great read.

I think there is a subtle difference between tailoring to a job or to a company. My advice would be not to tailer to a company to avoid trying too hard to look like a cultural fit. Tailoring for the job sounds like a great idea though, for the reason you mentioned. :)
