After you’ve nailed down what type of job you’re looking for, it’s time to actually start that job search. When you’re looking for a part-time position, it can be overwhelming if you’re trying to find what you’re looking for when you’re looking at listings that also include full-time and temp work. The good news is that getting specific about what you and using the right tools can streamline your search so you can spend more time setting up those interviews.
Getting your work reviewed and making sure your portfolio will shine and speak for itself during a job interview, is not an easy task. That is why Career Services put together The Portfolio Review Day to prepare Digital Media students for a real job interview. Students had to present their portfolios in front of the recruiters and receive feedback. The companies reviewing students’ portfolios were Incision Network and The Creative Group.
Congratulations! You scored the interview and are super-excited to showcase your skills and experience. Sometimes we’re so focused on simply landing the job, we forget to take that thought process a few steps further and imagine how we might actually fit in with a particular company’s office culture.
