Portfolio Review Night

Students and early professionals come together to review portfolios, make connections, and share career stories and advice.

PRN helps you fill your local network with people who know what it’s like to work here, now. Career development is about the long game; you won’t figure it all out in a day. But it's easier, more fun, and less stressful when you talk to people who’ve already been there. Then you can enjoy the journey instead of wondering what path to take.

Portfolio Review Night 2023

November 23, 2023
George Brown School of Design


Reviewees meet with three reviewers for 20 minutes each. This is where you show your portfolio and get suggestions and advice that’s specific to you and your goals. At the end of each 20 minute meeting, a signal tells you to move on to your next reviewer.


Reviewees attend two discussion panels on subjects ranging from the behind the scenes of hiring, how to negotiate salaries, what to say in interviews, and more. Each panel is made up of a group of experienced professionals sharing their stories and insights.

Each reviewee takes a unique path through the evening depending what discussion panels they choose to attend. Yours might look like this diagram.

When you arrive, you'll be given a schedule that tells you exactly where to go, and our volunteers can help you out if you get mixed up.
