What should I expect?
The purpose of the Job Fair is to meet and connect with people who work at a variety of different companies and learn about their design culture. You should expect company reps to go over hiring practices and be prepared to answer some basic questions. AIGA NY will also have an Advice Breakout room staffed with talented designers and educators for attendees to ask general career advice. There is also a Meetup Breakout Room for you to meet your own peers! Each room will be labeled with company names for easy access.
How do I log into the virtual booths?
On the day of the fair you will see all the different companies and their Breakout Rooms. You will be able to access them in the event.
Can I log in if I’m not a student or recent graduate?
You’re more than welcome to attend but do know that the event is geared towards our student and emerging designer community.
Will I be presenting my portfolio?
In short, no. The purpose is for information gathering and not a time to pitch to companies. You are welcome to follow up with the representatives afterwards, so it’s good to have a personal website prepared! All contact information will be provided by the company representative.
No portfolios? What will be discussed in the booths?
We encourage you to bring questions for the representatives. Common topics include hiring procedures, timeframes, and qualities the company looks for in a designer.
What time should I log in?
The Virtual Job Fair will be open from 12-5pm. Feel free to come anytime during the fair, but do know you will probably not have enough time to visit every virtual booth. We encourage you to visit the companies that interest you first.
What should I wear?
The Virtual Job Fair is a casual event with no need for formal wear. Just be yourself! Please be prepared to have your video on.
Should I do any preparation?
Yes! Before attending review the participating companies and come prepared with a list of questions for the companies you would like to go to first.
