Event Information

Are you a student, recent grad, or junior creative?

Grab your complete or work-in-progress portfolio for our speed-dating-style review session on Thursday, April 14, 2022, at 6:30pm at The Center for Architecture and Design! Get a 15-minute face-to-face with a reviewer, get constructive criticism, and then get moving to the next! 

This fast-paced session will offer you a range of perspectives on your portfolio all within one evening and before you apply to your next job. This is designed to be a casual setting to connect you with some of Columbus’ finest creative talent in a range of disciplines, covering branding, print, and digital. You’ll have the opportunity to practice your interview skills, get feedback on your work, and gain insight into the industry. 

  • FREE for CSCA members.
  • $5 for non-members.
  • Limited to the first 30 participants to sign up. 
  • Admission includes food and a nonalcoholic beverage. 

Help! My portfolio isn’t ready.

It’s never too early to get constructive feedback, and we all know that perfection is unattainable, anyways! This session is all about improving your book and getting practice sharing it to help you feel confident next time you interview for your dream job.

How to participate

  • Register for your spot in the event. (Remember to sign in to your account if you are a CSCA member). 
  • Gather business cards and 3–5 pieces of your best work and prepare to spend 15 minutes talking about it. Printed artwork or digital portfolios are equally great.
