Have you ever asked yourself what the specifics of Portfolios are nowadays? What is the best format, and what you should include?

A Portfolio is a collection of your work. It shows how your skills and ideas have developed over a period of time, and demonstrates your creativity, personality, ability, commitment. It is the tool that helps juries or individual experts evaluate your potential.

Portfolios take time and it can be extremely hard to know where to start, deciding what to show and what to exclude, while also considering how to make it both appealing and informative for the professionals who will be viewing it.

Time: 10:00-12:30 (including breaks)
Location: Online – Zoom
