P12 Portfolio Review

  • Nov 15, 2012 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This event has proven to be successful time and time again for recent graduates and young professionals who have been in the workforce for a while. A portfolio is a constant work in progress, so come and have it reviewed by prominent Chicago architects from different backgrounds and experiences. Get feedback, share ideas with other young peoples, and walk away with a vision to take your portfolio to the next level.


Here are some details for tomorrow's event:


We will allocate 10-15 minutes per reviewee, depending on the number of attendees. Once you walk in you will need to sign in and pick up your round number. After your portfolio has been reviewed, you will need to skip one or two rounds in order to let others be reviewed. In previous years each reviewee got a change to sit down with 4-5 reviewers on average. The numbers will be given out on first-come first-served basis so it is in your best interests to arrive on time. In case you arrive late, please follow the arrows into the kitchen/multipurpose space.


In times when your portfolio is not being reviewed, we encourage you to mingle with other participants as their feedback might be just as valuable.


Hope to see you tomorrow!

    I had a great experience here: so great that I, soon after, got a job which was a direct outcome of the event! I would recommend this event to any young professional, whether or not they are seeking employment. I was able to sit down with 3 reviewers and get really great feedback. I made a point to reach out to those individuals the next day and thank them, which continued the conversation. One of the reviewers connected me with someone she knew was hiring. I was called in for an interview and offered the job! The portfolio review is a great opportunity to meet other young professionals, which I also did and ended up connecting them with other people I know too. So, I absolutely recommend going to this event for great conversations and potential for more! Thank you to all responsible for this event!

    It was great. I got to meet new people and got to see few unexpected faces at the event which was nice. I think I learned a lot from insightful reviews from the reviewers. Thank you for organizing this event.
