On November 10th, 2012 NY Creative Interns hosted their 2nd Annual Find & Follow Your Passion Conference, featuring creative professionals from companies such as NY Mag, kbs+, Behance, Twitter, and Marvel Comics. Hundreds of young creatives fled to Pratt Institute to listen in on talks about how to use online tools to make connections, balancing side projects, and the art of negotiation. Missed the conference? You’re in luck. We will be releasing the videos from the keynote speakers and the panel sessions over the next few weeks.
