Portfolio Clinic Tips By Anna Cook
1. Bring Your Work
As much as the agencies representatives are visionaries, they can’t analyse your work by looking at your nice outfit. Bring a Laptop, DVD or portfolio for them to look at.
2. Be Cool
No need to be nervous, it’s not an interview. All you’ll get is frank, valuable advice. If you need camomile tea/Valium/a slap round the chops to calm down, do what it takes.
3. Make Contacts
Swapping tips/jokes/business cards with the agencies and other attendees is the best way to get into the digital media industry. Pull out your best charm offensive.
Find out a bit about the agencies that will be there. Not only will you flatter their egos but you’ll get to talk to the people most relevant to you.
5. Bring the i-Design 09 Team a Gift
We are always happy to receive gifts and especially like shoes and beer (but not beer on our shoes!).
