June / This Is Not University / Folios, Interviews & Faux Pas.

This Is Not University and The Design Kids present the next talk in a series of events that aim to explore life in-between full-time study and full-time work.

Should you take a portfolio to an interview? Should your portfolio be portrait or landscape? How many projects should you include? Should you rock up at studios unannounced asking for a job? Should you attend industry events that claim to know all the answers?

Join Christopher Doyle, Stephen Grace and Josie Young from Christopher Doyle & Co. for a talk full of practical advice about interviews, folios and faux pas.

6:00 pm arrival for a 6:30 pm start.
8:00 pm finish.

Free beer & cider.
Free tote bag for first 10 people to arrive.
