"Hire Education" AIGA Design Reviews April 25

This... looks like a great event from the people at AIGA and the Art Center Design College. An excellent opportunity to get real professional feedback and tips on Design work with an eye toward getting student designers into professional design careers. 

Portfolio Reviews & Breakout Sessions with the Pros
Friday, April 25, 2008 from 9 am to 4 pm
Sponsored by AIGA New Mexico & The Art Center
5000 Marble Ave NE, Albuquerque

Finding the right design position is a tough job. AIGA New Mexico is making it easier for graphic design students throughout the state. We invite you to gather for a tip-filled day specifically addressing the agony and the ecstasy of entering the job market. Our ad hoc faculty of local, professional designers will review your portfolios, providing valuable suggestions to enliven your presentation and identifying your strengths and areas for improvement. In breakout sessions students will discuss specific aspects of the post-graduation job search with professional designers.

Hire Education is open to students majoring in graphic design at colleges throughout New Mexico. We will accept juniors, seniors, and recent graduates with prepared portfolios first. If there is room, we will also welcome students without portfolios who would like to observe the reviews and participate in the breakout sessions.

Our faculty of professional designers represents a wide range of expertise, years in the field, and types of experience in the industry. Some are owners of graphic design firms; some work as junior and senior designers; some are freelancers. They know what they're talking about.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to jumpstart your career. Sign up for Hire Education today.
