Portfolio/Resume Reviews Student are reminded to bring portfolios either in print or digital format. If digital format, students must bring tablet/laptop loaded with portfolio or "work in progress" and to remember power cords as needed. We will not be providing computers/tablets for students to load presentation on.

Every 20 minutes we will encourage a switch of student/professional match ups. Once students are done meeting with professional for review, students will come to “home base” area and then will be matched up with another professional. We have allotted for three “switches” of student/professional match up. We also encourage you to visit the ASID and IIDA Pods to learn more about the organizations.
