Portfolio Expo

The annual Stamps Portfolio Expo is a wonderful opportunity for students to get expert feedback on their work, explore various careers and extend their networks for jobs and internships.  The Stamps School welcomes organizations from the non-profit and commercial sectors to engage one-on-one with our students, and allows participating organizations the opportunity to recruit some of the most creative young talent anywhere.

The 2014 Portfolio Expo will take place from 11am to 2pm on February 6, 2014 in the Street Gallery of the Art & Architecture Building. Please submit your resume directly to John Luther (jonel@umich.edu) and indicate the organizations with whom you would like to meet by January 17, 2014.   Please note that participants prefer to see a link to your web site, so include that information on your resume.
