Portfolio Reviews & Interview Materials Prep

Prep your Portfolio Before that Big Interview

Let us help you put your best foot forward for that next job interview or tenure application with a little PRIMPing: Portfolio Reviews & Interview Materials Prep. Sign up to have your work samples reviewed by industry professionals at USITT19!

Reviews are available for students and seasoned professionals in all areas of design, technology, management, and/or education. All applicants must be either individual USITT members or registered for the entire Conference; Stage Expo-only passes are not applicable. Most commissions are seeking volunteer reviewers, as well.

Sign up to have your work reviewed or to volunteer as a reviewer using the links below. Apply by Feb. 25 to be guaranteed a time slot. At the Conference, a limited number of slots will be available for last-minute registration but may conflict with sessions and/or fill up quickly.

Reviews take place for 30 minutes, unless noted otherwise, and are held in the Convention Center (see signup for room location). There will be LIMITED internet access available, so please plan a back-up option if it is not accessible during your review.

If you’re unsure of what should go into your presentation, be sure to follow our guidelines and ask for further suggestions!
