Wondering “what’s next?” as you approach your senior year and beyond? Prepare for success in the real world by learning portfolio and interview strategies from grads who have been there.  Print and Digital, Freelance, In-house and Agency… learn about options, and how to GET READY!

The event will begin with a panel discussion featuring emerging professionals with various backgrounds, design sub-specialties and professional experience. They’ll discuss the roads they’ve traveled and the stumbles and successes they’ve encountered through the journey from graduation to starting a design career.
