    I would expect one, even if it's a reasonably short letter/email to accompany a portfolio or CV.

    A portfolio tells me a bit about what you're capable of but it does nothing to tell me how you see yourself fitting into the team or why you feel you're worth the time of checking out said folio.

    Doesn't have to be a long formal letter but some indication that you've researched my company and team is expected in the same way I would spend time researching you.

    Just mailing a link to a folio or Github is lazy.
