Here are some key questions and answers about the event:
Do I need to have a portfolio? No, you do not need to have a portfolio, but you should plan on showing a minimum of 4 to 6 pieces of work that you are considering including in your portfolio.
How many professionals will I be able to meet? You will be assigned to one industry professional on Saturday and another industry professional on Sunday.
How long is the session? On both Saturday and Sunday, you will meet with a professional for apx. 2 to 3 hours.
Do I have to register for both Saturday and Sunday? No, but to maximize your networking and to receive the most feedback, you should register for both Saturday and Sunday.
Do I need to bring my resume? Yes. What is most important is that you bring the content that will be included in your resume (such as education, job experience, contact information, etc.) even if it is not finalized.
How about my LinkedIn profile? If you have one already, this is a good way for you to share with industry professionals and receive feedback. If you don’t have one, this is a great opportunity for you to learn how to create your profile.
What other events or sessions will there be on Saturday or Sunday? In addition to meeting professionals, on Saturday we will have 2 to 3 speakers providing you valuable information on design-related topics.
Do I have to bring all the items (portfolio, resume, LinkedIn profile, etc.) if I only have a few samples of my work? No, even if you only have a handful of work to show, you should bring what you can to receive feedback and tips for improvement.
