Emerging Professionals Workshop 2022

We're starting off the day with portfolio reviews; you will sit with experienced creatives for one-on-one sessions to review your work and help you hone your presentation skills. Come prepared with your work in print, or on your own laptop or tablet. Student attendees have been hired by reviewers in the past, so bring your best self! 

Attendees will get a visual glimpse into the design process of well-established professionals. A selection of industry leaders will share case study presentations, their insight, knowledge, and design process by taking us through their projects from start to finish.

End the day with a great career fair where you will be able to network with potential employers and learn about internship and job opportunities. Come prepared with business cards and start building a professional network.
