If you are seeking portfolio feedback or industry-specific career advice, your first meeting will be with a Creative Industry Liaison.

Industry Strategy Sessions and Portfolio Reviews

These appointments are for advanced students who have a portfolio or career plan in progress and want feedback on how to polish it. Students will bring portfolio samples, evidence of their existing professional web presence, and specific industry questions for feedback.
