Interview Skills Coaching

Students and alumni are encouraged to set appointments and meet with their local Career Services advisor on campus for assistance with their career planning. This includes sharpening interviewing skills and practicing with a Career Services Advisor to prepare for the next job opportunity.

Portfolio Development Assistance

A portfolio of work is critical to landing a career in the creative media industry, and it is best to begin building your portfolio at the start of your education. SAE Institute offers an innovative tool, Portfolium, to help build your professional portfolio that can showcase the skills and projects developed during the program.

The Career Services team can help advise you on how to organize a portfolio, and Portfolium can also provide support on producing an effective portfolio.
