A translator of tradeoffs Theres no perfect interface and no right answer. Youre able to create different options and translate the tradeoffs between them in the context of business objectives.

Wed like to see a diversity of projects, but be careful that your portfolio doesn't get scattered or overly long focus on curation and quality to choose a solid collection of outcomes and design intermediaries and deliverables (especially flows, style guides, mockups, and prototypes), and be sure the portfolio demonstrates the design and thought process behind each image.
You will have an opportunity to present and walk through your portfolio if selected for candidacy.
