Who Should Attend

Would you describe yourself as young, ambitious, creative, talented, energetic, resourceful, and proactive? Then we want you to attend. This event is for college students, recent grads, and young professionals with up to three years experience. Companies will be looking for skill sets ranging from design and marketing to photography and social media.

What Makes This Event Special

The Set Up

We’ve replaced large, awkward tables with high top tables to allow for more natural conversations and to break down barriers between attendees and representatives. The atmosphere we create will make you feel comfortable and able to be yourself. This is a chance for your personality to shine.

We Prepare You to Do Your Best

Not only does your ticket get you into the event, but we’ll be hosting a FREE live virtual series of prep events beforehand to make sure you’re ready to make the most of your experience. Workshops include:

Your Resumes in Recruiters Hands and On Their Computers

In addition to the chance to hand your resume to employers in person, all attendees will send us their resumes, which will then be compiled into a digital résumé book that all employers will receive. No need to worry about yours getting lost in the shuffle. That said, we encourage you to bring plenty of copies of your resume, business cards, and a way to show off your portfolio if you have one (iPad, mobile phone, printed copies, etc).

Offline Meets Digital

Your registration goes well beyond the event. In addition to the digital prep workshops, all attendees get:

  •  Exclusive access to our private Facebook group where you’ll get personalized tips, reminders, and can connect with other attendees.
  • The latest event updates and information about companies and reps via event mobile app.
  • Connections! Stay connected to companies, reps, and other attendees and get updates by following along using our event hashtag, #FindSpark.

Your Very Own Professional Headshot

During the Mixer, check out our headshot area! Our photographer will take your professional headshot for you to use online. We want to see you looking spiffy in your LinkedIn profile!

We can’t wait for you to join us. Space is limited, RSVP today.
