Each summer New York City is filled with new graduates, new interns, and new opportunities for any young, ambitious creative. Join us for our Summer Mixer Series at Wix: three events that will bring together creative interns, recent grads, and young professionals for a night of mingling, new friends, and connections. Each event will feature a short and inspiring keynote from an established creative professional speaking to a different theme.
Whether you’ve been here two weeks or two years, there are lots of adjustments you have to make when you live in the best city on earth. What neighborhood will be best for you? How do you make living in a tiny apartment on a tiny budget work? What’s the best way to navigate the pressures of such a competitive environment? Hear from Zoe Fox, Content Coordinator at Mashable, a creative who’s navigated the transition to the big apple personally and get insider tips on tackling a career the city that never sleeps.
We make meeting other creatives and finding professional opportunities and mentors fun, because it should be.
