I'm kind of new at graphic design / art direction. The only thing in my portfolio are school projects and other random things done for friends and family. What can I do to create a portfolio book that gives me a better chance of getting a job?

Research what type of job you want. When it comes to putting your book together, you're going to have to consider what your employer wants to see.

Make it concise! Put your best and most relevant work up front, and make it easy for someone to understand it. Explain your work as a solution to a problem, and briefly illustrate your thinking process.
