The easiest way to learn in my opinion is by observing other peoples work, paying attention to the details and how some problems are overcome. That for me is more useful than a tutorial because it requires me not only attention but also makes me think on how I could do that with my set of skills. That's why case studies are extremely valuable. They show the evolution but without giving instructions.
Showcasing your portfolio is really important in the process of job hunting, I don't believe that is all about your education but what work did you worked on or were part on. Many things that we share to our next employer totally defines your first impression as a whole. I've done several interviews for design positions in the past and one thing that we mostly tend to forget or to finish off too quickly is the Curriculum Vitae (our resume). How you define yourself on that piece of paper is also a form of presentation of you.
