What is your web presence like? Are you only visible on Facebook, or do you have a professional online presence? If you are entering the job market (or planning early for that distant day), the answer to these questions could set you apart from other applicants. This workshop will discuss why you should consider developing an online portfolio or posting an online CV and will provide supported studio time to begin doing so. Graduate students can find more info and register on PLAN’s website.
