Chicago Design Professionals-
Spring is right around the corner and that means job hunting for graduating students.  IDSA Chicago and UIC are hosting an event to get local students ready for their moment in the spotlight.  On February 19th we will be bringing students and professionals together for a portfolio workshop.  While it is always good for students to get feedback on their body of work, wouldn't it be great if you could see a before and after look at one project? 
 
We are asking students to bring one key project (digitally) from their portfolio to review with professionals in the morning.  Then they will team up with another student and revise their presentation to present again to another professional at the end of the day.  This process will give them both feedback and a template to use to fine tune their entire portfolio.  The schedule will look like this:
