  • 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
  • 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM 


Review sessions are conducted like speed dating. This format maximizes the number of reviewers you meet with during your assigned review session. One-to-one time with reviewers is limited to 15 minutes, so be prepared to present your portfolio and receive feedback within this time constraint. 

This event is designed to model the interview process; so be early, be prepared, and be mindful of how you present yourself and your work. Professional attire is recommended.

How to Prepare:

  • Present 8 to 12 of your best portfolio pieces.
  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before your review time
  • Have 10-15 copies of your resume with 3 or 4 photocopies or printouts of your best work attached as a reference / reminder for interested reviewers
  • A fully charged laptop / device if you plan on showing screen-based work (we cannot guarantee that power will be available to every table in the room) and an extension cord.
  • We cannot guarantee wireless internet, so have back-up files saved locally.
  • No access to a laptop? Multi-media projects can be presented as printed screen shots.
