Monthly Meeting | Online Portfolio Readiness

  • Feb 5, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Speak:  Almost all UX positions listed today require an online portfolio. Do you have one that is up to snuff? Join us and learn the easiest and best tools for making one. Is Behance, Carbonmade, Coroflot, Viewbook, Portfoliobox, Krop, Dribbble or something else the best one for you? Then once it's posted, how do you ensure it gets the right people looking at it? Mark Richards from Vaco will discuss everything from SEO of your portfolio to an insiders guide of what recruiters and hiring managers see when they look at yours (it's likely not what you meant them to see).

The Spot:  Bring a warm jacket if you want to experience the expansive rooftop patio. And use this map:

The Parking: Bring your ticket up to Vaco and they will validate it for you. Park in the gated lot nearest the 4250 building.

The Sponsor:  Vaco \vay-ko\ verb [Latin]: to free yourself from work. Vaco matches the strongest UX professionals (as well as accounting, financial, IT & administrative) with the unique project and permanent needs of their clients - simple in theory, difficult in execution. Your Vaco Partners are pedigreed players with either deep industry experience in the discipline they serve or significant & proven experience in ours. They have cutting-edge technology driven tools, a national reach and a collective network of professionals that lead to your unique solution.

    Great, it was good to see what other people are doing and good to hear that we're all dealing with the same limitations

    Great content, but a bit tough to see the presentation from the back. Could still hear though so it was at least valuable. Glad the slides will be sent out!

    Park in either of the parking garages. Any structure around here where you pull a ticket to get in, will be validated.
