WANTED Career Day

This event is for students and emerging designers

Part of the WantedDesign mission is to support young creatives in their career development. For the second year during NYCxDESIGN, WantedDesign is offering a unique opportunity to network with some of New York’s top creative organizations, companies, agencies and non-profits. As NYCxDESIGN 2018 welcomes thousands of professionals to the city, WantedDesign has partnered with AIGA, AIGA NY Chapter, Core77 and its jobs platform Coroflot to host “Wanted Career Day” at WantedDesign Brooklyn on Thursday, May 17th. This event should be at the top of the list for recent graduates, design schools, and new talent searching guidance for a successful career pathway. Ask what a typical day is like for their designers, find out about all the office perks and hear what their creative directors look for when they hire new talent. You will discover what is unique about each situation and why you might want to work for one or more of these companies.
