2016 Emerging Professionals Workshop
Saturday February 27 9:00 AM-3:00 PM
Western Connecticut State University

AIGA Connecticut presents our annual Emerging Professionals Workshop! Students will hear from recent graduates working in the field and experienced creative practitioners on how to make the jump from student to design professional, pick up career-seeking tips in our presentation sessions, and get their work reviewed in one-on-one settings by creatives from across the state.

The Emerging Professionals Workshop walks participants through the job hunt process, addressing portfolio preparation and presentation, job application, interviewing, follow-up, and networking.

We recruit more than twenty-five experienced creatives to participate in the portfolio review, so that each student can meet with 2-3 professionals one-on-one to talk about their work. Students should bring their portfolio or five pieces of work (on an iPad or laptop, or in print). In the past, students have been recruited by reviewers.

The event is free. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided. Share this page with your colleagues and fellow students.

Stay tuned for speaker and registration information!
