Career Fair, Friday, April 1st, 2016 from 1-3:30
This single day event, held every April, is perhaps the most important Career Services event any student could attend. Why? If you’re looking for a job – full time, part time, freelance, or internship – you can interview on the spot, meet representatives of companies and businesses where you’d like to work, and do a little self-promotion all at one place in one time. Even if you’re not looking for a job, this event is an excellent one to attend because it will give you both great interview experience and insight into the contemporary job market: what kinds of companies are hiring? What kind of skills and qualities are they looking for in their employees? What are the trends in the current art markets? Businesses from all spectrums of the art world attend: from galleries and museums, to graphic design firms and ad agencies, to individual fine artists looking for studio assistants with everything in between. This event is not to be missed, even if you’re a freshman or sophomore, or not currently looking for a job because the better you understand the job market, the better prepared you’ll be when you’re ready to enter it.
