Current students are paired with DAS alumni for feedback on their portfolios or works-in-progress.
Time & Location
Friday, April 22, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
HOW IT WORKS
Digital Arts & Sciences alumni volunteer their Friday morning to review current student portfolios in a virtual, one-on-one setting. Via Zoom breakout sessions, students have the opportunity to practice their interview skills, get constructive feedback on their work, and gain insight into the industry. Students categorize their portfolio as animation, game design, or experience design and production and will be matched up with reviewers who specialize in each area.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Recent and soon-to-be graduates are invited to participate in Project Portfolio. Undergraduate, as well as graduate students, are encouraged to participate.
Consider the following:
Have your final portfolio ready to go.
Testing your software (zoom), video, and microphone
Set yourself up in a room that is quiet and distraction-free.
If you are submitting a website portfolio, make sure there are no missing items or broken links.
Organize your files so it's easy to find and share.
If you are sharing time-based work such as video or animation, be sure that these media files are easily accessible during your presentation.
While this is not an interview, it is an opportunity to network and leave a lasting impression. Even though this will be done via video screen sharing, we will be able to see you! Wear business casual attire. Other recommendations include getting a good night's sleep, taking a shower, combing your hair, and, of course, brushing your teeth.

Call for Reviewers
Thank you for your interest in assisting soon-to-be graduates in polishing their portfolios before venturing into the wild blue yonder of job-hunting.
Students register their portfolios and categorize them as animation, game design, or experience design and production. We will make every effort to match them with reviewers who share their interests or specialties. You can choose the portfolio format that is most comfortable for you to review. Please keep in mind that the purpose of these reviews is to assist students in improving their work. The goal is to provide constructive feedback as we shape the next generation of DAS students.
