I recently participated in the AIAS portfolio and resume review. I really enjoyed seeing and learning about the students interests, aspirations, talents and struggles. I remember well what it was like to be a student and tried my best to use my experience and perspective as an architect to help answer any questions and used my eye and professional judgement to point out things that potential employers and graduate programs might look for in a portfolio. I also printed out a reference to some AIA links and checklists advising on how to prepare a portfolio that I handed out to each student I sat with. I look forward to participating in other upcoming events, such as “Dinner with an Architect”.
