Orange County Campus Works to Ensure that All Students Meet Industry Experts at Portfolio Show

A new concept was tested to help ensure that students participating in The Art Institute of California—Orange County, a campus of Argosy University, portfolio show had the chance to meet industry experts. The goal was to showcase their work to employers and receive feedback—helping them to prepare for interviewing in the real world. 

The new concept focused on portfolio reviews for specific programs. Prior to each portfolio review panel, the campus hosted a reception to give employers an opportunity to network with other attending industry professionals. After each panel, the school’s career services department reviewed feedback from industry guests.

The format was met with enthusiasm from graduates, faculty, staff, and industry members. The most recently portfolio event was attended by companies including Quiksilver / DC Shoes, Volcom, Mattel, and Tilly’s.

Industry guests were impressed with work they saw from the school’s students, with many agreeing to return for future reviews and workshops.
