- About SCAD
Prepare your résumé, portfolio and work samples. Get feedback from professors on the quality of your portfolio and recommended areas of improvement. If you need assistance in preparing your résumé, attend workshops offered through the office for career and alumni success at SCAD. Be sure to save your portfolio and work samples offline to ensure you will be able to present your work to employers at the career fair.
For additional assistance with fine-tuning your résumé and other leave-behind materials, schedule an appointment with your career adviser.
SCAD has partnered with Behance to provide you with a free online portfolio. The office for career and alumni success will be encouraging employers who register for SCAD Career Fair 2014 to preview the work of talented SCAD students and alumni on Behance. If you have developed your own website, you can include the link in your SCAD portfolio.
If you already have a Behance portfolio but are not a member of the SCAD gallery, ensure your work appears on it by joining now.
