Talk: Building designer CV and portfolio
I am sure that you all have prepared CVs and portfolios several times already. However, preparing a portfolio it's not a one time effort.
I would like to share my experience as a designer who applied for many design jobs but also as a manager reviewing CVs and portfolios of candidates applying for design positions.
Massive thanks to our this months' Host:
