Find & Follow Your Passion Keynote Announced: Carla Echevarria, Creative Strategy Lead at Facebook

We’re beyond thrilled to announce that the fourth installment of our full-day career conference Find & Follow Your Passion will take place on Saturday, November 9th, in partnership with the Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts.

The connections created at our events are powerful — they’ve lead to countless jobs and career opportunities — formally and informally. An attendee at our Summer Opportunity Mixer landed a job through someone she struck up a conversation with while waiting to speak with an employer!
