Portland Portfolio Reviewers Needed!

Are you a communications professional? Have at least a couple of years of experience under your belt? Want to hang out with our super smart undergrads for a day giving them your expert advice and helping guide their path toward a fruitful career?

Join us as a portfolio reviewer for our Winter term portfolio reviews, scheduled at the Turnbull Center on Friday, March 9th from 9am-5pm.

We need reviewers who can commit to either a morning shift (9-noon), and afternoon shift (1-5) or the whole live long day. Lunch will be provided.

If you’re not familiar with the reviews, here’s the scoop:

The PR Portfolio Reviews are designed to serve as a trial for about-to-graduate Public Relations Majors from the University of Oregon embarking on the search for their first professional job. These students have the opportunity to present key projects and receive valuable feedback from PR professionals on their class work, capstone course client work, internships and professional projects. Reviewers provide an evaluation on individual presentation styles, comments on the portfolio and offer ideas for improvement.

Each reviewer will participate on a panel with two or three professional peers. Each panel will, in turn, see one student per hour over the course of the review process.

Review appointments are 50 minutes long (with 10 minutes of flex time between each appointment). Students provide their panel with a 5 to 10 minute opportunity to review the portfolio, then students will present their portfolio for about 20 minutes. Following the presentation, students leave the room and the reviewers have an opportunity to discuss feedback they would like to give. Students return to the conference room and have the chance to engage with reviewers to learn how they can improve the presentation, the portfolio or both. Reviewers complete an evaluation form during the course of the review.
