Making Connections

A workshop for current students and recent graduates presented by Wix Playground Academy & AIGA NY

“It’s not about what you know, but who you know.” We’ve all heard this adage, which may be less true than it once was, but still very much reflects the world we live in. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to break out of your comfort zone and create valuable connections online and offline.
