Create A Successful Portfolio & Resume That Appeals To Employers & Clients

  • September 24, 2013 · 6:30 PM

As creatives, we always have countless questions about how to assemble our portfolios, how to present it — digital vs. hardcopy, what to include, etc. We also encounter constant questions on how to prepare our resumes: Should it be a basic straight and narrow resume, or should it show our creativity with a bit of flair and design?

To help answer these questions, we are fortunate to be able to bring in Shannon Sanderson, Branch Operations Manger from Digital People, to speak about what employers and recruiters look for in a portfolio and a resume. Shannon has been actively involved in creative and marketing recruiting for more than 15 years. She will help us answer so many questions we as designers have regarding our portfolios and resumes. Feel free to bring in your portfolios for some quick feedback on what you may want to do to enhance its presentation.

Whether you are searching out an entry-level creative position, an experienced designer getting the itch to move on, an independent freelance designer or even if you are content with your current position, this is an event you don't want to miss!

As always, our events are free, and food and beverages will be provided. We'll also have plenty of time available for networking with fellow designers.

For more information about Shannon Sanderson and Digital People, or if you are actively searching for a creative position, you can reach her by email at [masked], or by phone at[masked]-9551.

    Loved it. I think the presentation had some great points and I loved actually getting to look at other people's online portfolios. The Q&A was extensive and Shannon put a lot of care into her answers. This was VERY valuable. Thanks for putting it together!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
