Description

Austin Design Week 2018 Presents: Creating a Design Portfolio

Organized by: Nicole Umphress


Join us as we discuss how to create a design-focused resume and portfolio that gets hiring manager's attentions. The session will be interactive and engaging, filled with examples and best practices. We'll share what you should be doing and what to avoid so you best represent yourself to the community and potential employers.

You'll have the opportunity to work on your resume and portfolio so you leave the session ready to make changes that will have a huge impact on your job searches and careers.

We'll end the session with a short Q&A where we're joined by an industry recruiter. Leave the session with a working draft of your resume and a plan for creating (or revamping) a portfolio that gets employers' attentions.

We want you to leave motivated and ready to make changes and go land their first job or a new job!
