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.
