Attendees will include the best and brightest creative young minds in the New York City area and beyond, ranging from currently-enrolled university students to young professionals with up to three years experience: all looking to meet and connect with representatives from your company.

What Makes Our Events Special

The Skills of our Attendees
The creatives in our community possess a vast array of talents and skills, with backgrounds in graphic design, marketing, writing, social media, photography, videography, fashion, advertising, digital media, content creation, and more.

The Set Up
The event format will be that of a standard networking event. 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.

Attendee Preparedness
Our attendees will go through three different prep workshops on social media, resumes and cover letters prior to the event. Additionally, attendees will learn about the opportunities you’re offering via our custom mobile app, job board, and event website.

Diversity
We take pride in our community of diverse individuals who bring a unique perspective to the workplace by offering fresh ideas and viewpoints, and different approaches to doing business. We believe that by providing companies with access to a diverse workforce, we help them reach a greater pool of candidates — which greatly improves the odds of finding the best person for each open position. In a competitive marketplace, organizations that put people first – regardless of their race, religion, gender, age, sexual preference, or physical disability, have a true competitive edge in today’s global marketplace.

Digital Reach
In addition to meeting potential hires at the event, your participation will promote your company, brand, and culture to our community of young, hip creatives.
