In the spirit of Professional Development Month, TACAA has encouraged students, emerging professionals and seasoned professionals to submit their resumes and portfolios for critique. You never know when you may have to forward your resume for a job opening, leadership opportunity, or to simply introduce yourself to another professional or company.
As an initiative to build professional development skills among current students in the Robert R. Taylor School of Architecture and Construction Science, the Tuskegee Architecture and Construction Alumni Association (TACAA) will host its first Student Portfolio Competition in conjunction with AIAS Career Focus and TACAA's Professional Development Month, during which students can submit their resumes and portfolios for critique.
The official open date for the Portfolio Competition begins March 1st and ends March 27th. The submissions will be judged by a jury appointed by the TACAA Board and awards will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place submissions. The official release of the criteria package will be Sunday, February 28th, 2016. The official criteria package has been released! Click link to view: Criteria Package
