Spring Cleaning: Portfolio Review!

It's been a few months since we've done one of these, so for our second April meeting, we'll be doing a Portfolio/Resumé Review. Time to get clean out all the old stuff that's no longer relevant, or maybe not your best material, and get the new, fresh stuff in! This will be the first of two portfolio reviews, so if you're not able to make this one, you'll get another chance with our first (dayside) meetup in May.

Bring your portfolio (and/or résumé) on a USB flashdrive, or show it to us online from your own website or a service like Behance, we'll load it up and give you our honest opinions. You'll get meaningful input, suggestions and constructive criticism on how it looks, and suggest ways to improve it. Practically every job advertised online these days requires a link to a web-based portfolio along with the résumé, so they're just as important if not more so.

We'll give priority to anyone who hasn't had theirs looked at during a previous meetup. But if you did get a previous review and you're looking for follow-up since your improvements, do please come and we'll try to get to yours too.

The meeting room has a big HDTV display so we can put them up big for everyone to see. If you don't have a portfolio yet but think you need one (answer: yes you do), this would be a good meeting to come and take notes on for when you make yours. If you have one but it's not finished, that's OK- don't be afraid to show us what you have so far. And besides, now would be the best time for you to get advice!

    Wish I could go because I just finished revamping my portfolio! I have a press gig tonight though. Hope it goes well!
