School of Art + Design Career Futures Event

Friday, April 30 at 10:00am to 5:30pm

Virtual Event

This annual event connects students with professionals who represent career paths in art, art and technology, and product design. Professionals will share their career-path stories, talk about what inspires them in their chosen fields, and respond to questions from the discussion moderators.

In consideration of ongoing global health conditions, the 2021 Career Futures event will be entirely remote and will consist of three successive moderated panelist discussions followed by one-on-one portfolio review meetings. The review meetings will be reserved for majors in art, art and technology and product design and are limited in number. Links and instructions will be shared with Art + Design majors soon, and sign-up is first come/first served.

All participating professionals' brief bios are posted online now with ongoing updates.
