    I've never heard of needing such a thing for a role like that and it doesn't really make sense. A portfolio in various forms makes sense for an artist, writer/journalist, musician, programmer, web developer but not for a tech that is going to be building or repairing computers.

    As mentioned portfolios are common in creative fields and fields with a lot of freelance work.

    Just like IT support, it unusual for programmers/developers to have portfolios, 99% of their work is normally owned by their employer, they generally sign an NDA when taking a role.

    Probably his use of the word *portfolio* isn't a good choice of words, in this case. He is clearly asking you to outline what you have done over the past 9 years, so that he can read through it and determine your level of skills.
