Expanding Designlife Horizons
On Thursday, February 18, the College of Design held their 5th Annual Career Expo, which gave students in all disciplines an opportunity to mingle with organizations looking to hire design students for part-time, full time, and internship positions. The event was coordinated by the Department of Student Services’ Director of Career and Academic Advising, Dr. Amanda Williams. To prepare for this event, students are encouraged to research the firms, prepare and review their resumes and portfolios with the guidance of College mentors, develop a brief self-introduction, dress to impress, and explore many more interview best practices.
After the Expo, the College will hold the Spring Interview Days event, which is a two-day opportunity for students to schedule an interview with up to 3 of the firms participating.
