Virtual Portfolio and Resume Review

Through the uncharted waters of COVID-19, we know the instability can be stressful. But we’re here to help! If you have experienced a layoff, you are a freelancer needing work, or you are looking for new opportunities during this unsure time, we want to partner you with someone who can help give practical guidance and encouragement. Whether you need feedback on your portfolio or resume, or need additional advice as you network, we want to provide you with the resources you need to succeed. The deadline to sign up is April 15!

Sailors (reviewees)

Navigators (reviewers)
We can’t make this program work without amazing volunteers! If you have the capacity to review a couple of resumes or portfolios, or you can be available as an encourager or coach, please sign up here 👉https://forms.gle/fEb3AnjGVHPs8mHXA 

How it works

  • AIGA KC will partner “Sailors” (creatives needing professional guidance that may include a portfolio or resume review, and networking advice) with two or three “Navigators” (professionals who can provide the advice and resources needed). Communication will be conducted on a virtual basis via the platform that works best for you: email, phone, video, etc.

Expectations

  • There are no official time requirements for participation. Once you are partnered with the other two or three creatives, we hope you will reach out at least a couple of times per month during the course of the COVID-19 timeline. Our goal is to empower creatives to be successful and connected during this turbulent time.
