I’m in Portland, after an 800 mile drive yesterday. Between portfolio cases and brochures (probably way more than I will actually give away), I have an impressive pile of luggage. If I were flying, I would have had to ship things ahead.
I checked out my reviewing schedule on the web. I have a total of 18 reviews scheduled. Of my top 18 choices, I have interviews with all but four. The four interviews on Thursday are nicely spread out, but Friday morning, I have three interviews back to back. That means that at least two of the interviews will be shorter than twenty minutes, because it takes five minutes to pack up your work, find the next reviewer, and unpack the pictures. The same thing happens on Sunday morning.
After the initial headaches inputting my priority list, the assignment and scheduling of reviewers went off without a hitch. My initial misgivings about the software skills of the organization have dissipated; the scheduling was very well done, and the results presented nicely.
