What's in it for me?
Heaps: The most current and concise advice on how you can best present your work to gain your dream design job. Inspirational stories and folio examples to give you motivation. Step-by-step help to get your own web, digital and printed folios started, as well as your CV. Helpful feedback on any folio work you have prepared by the end of the week.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! Attending is free for all Swinburne students.
Do I have to attend the whole week?
No, you are welcome to attend as many, or as few, of the sessions as you like! We have ensured no two sessions overlap so you can even attend every session if you are super-keen!
Can I just turn up on a day without registering?
No, you must register beforehand to ensure we can enrol you into the Canvas organisation and you can access the events. We encourage anyone interested to register.
What if I’m not available to join the live online sessions?
No problem. If you’re not available on those days, or don’t have good enough internet to attend sessions live, we still encourage you to register. You will be enrolled in the Canvas organisation, receive any updates to the program, be able to download all resources and have access any recordings we are able to make. Please note, some presentations will not be recorded due to copyright reasons, so it’s ideal if you can attend live if possible.
I'm studying in Swinburne TAFE / PAVE / Academy – can I attend?
Yes, definitely. While this event is organised by the Department of Communication Design within the School of Design, we do our best to make all the information relevant to all Swinburne students who are interested in working in design.
I'm studying a different course – not studying design – can I still attend?
Absolutely! You don’t have to be studying design to attend, just interested in working in design. All Swinburne higher education or PAVE students are welcome, regardless of program, course, year or discipline.
I'm only in my first year – is it worth me attending?
Yes, definitely. Even if you are a long way away from graduating, it's never too soon to start developing your folio and we do our best to make all the information we present relevant and accessible to all year levels.
