May 1, 2009, Newsletter Issue #31: The Portfolio Review

Tip of the Week

Portfolio reviews can be stressful. Sitting in a room with a potential employer and discussing your work can make anyone nervous--even someone with an amazing graphic designer portfolio. There are some things that you can do to make the experience less nerve-wracking:

Practice. Sit down with your book and talk to a range of different people about your work. The more you practice, the better you'll get. Make sure the work that you are showing is the absolute best you have. It will boost your confidence. Work on handling the portfolio while you are speaking and explaining your designs. Coordinating all of that can be a challenge and you won't want to try it out for the first time during an interview. Make sure to check your portfolio out a week or so prior to the interview. If there is something amiss, you'll have time to fix it before you go. Finding out last-minute would be a difficult situation to remedy.If you run through these things and get yourself ready to go, the portfolio review should be a snap.
