Marketing Yourself: Architecture / Design Portfolio Development for JOBSEARCH
When your objective is to find a job or an internship, you have to market yourself. By developing a clear positioning within the profession (based on your skills and experience), and differentiation (something that pulls you apart from everyone else who is interested in the same thing, you are able to tell a great story about yourself, which is essential in order to get the job. However, telling the story without illustrating your points with examples of your work, is meaningless in the various design fields. A portfolio is the tool that illustrates your points.
The difference between a job-search portfolio and an academic application portfolio, however, is that in this case you will be there, in the office, doing the presentation (as opposed to the case of the academic admission portfolio, which has to do all the talking itself (so to speak).

In our workshops, we will help you get there!
