Join us in celebrating emerging talent! Several graduating students from the Douglas College ‘Print Futures’ program will be exhibiting their portfolios between 6.30pm and 7pm.

Have you ever interviewed for a job you wanted but didn’t get? Chances are you didn’t achieve each of the critical steps needed to receive an offer.
As a follow-up to his informative and entertaining presentation on “The Top 10 Mistakes Writers Make when Looking for Work,” Jack Molisani will show how a portfolio is not just a sample of your work, it is a tool you can use to control an interview and achieve four specific objectives that result in a job offer.
The presentation includes what to put in a portfolio, how to get things to put in your portfolio, and most importantly, how to use your portfolio to ace a job interview.
Want (or need) a better job, contract or outsource project? Don’t miss our May meeting!
