Questions to ask during portfolio review

Hi all!

I'm a recent grad looking for work and have a few portfolio revew meetings planned for the upcoming weeks. They're through ADPList (30 minutes long, not related to any specific jobs/positions, and won't be repeated), but I'm hoping to get a lot of helpful and actionable feedback that I can use before I apply to jobs.

I already know a few areas I'd like help on (trying to craft compelling case studies is hard!) but I wanted to ask for suggestions on questions to ask. I also don't want to reply on the reviewers to give insights unprompted, so are there certain things I can ask or bring up to the reviewers so I can get the best feedback?

Thanks!

Great questions! Some quick thoughts:- I'm interested in applying to [insert role] → how do you think I can further tailor my portfolio to pique the interest of recruiters / hiring managers to land my first calls? → are there any skills overall that my current portfolio is not demonstrating but is crucial to the role?- is there anything that you think is missing from my case studies? (eg. more process work, more visuals, more text explanation)

These questions are thoughtful and seem like they'd produce really insightful responses, thank you so much! I'm glad you mentioned bringing up a specific role - it hadn't occurred to me but definitely seems crucial in retrospect.
