Our monthly mixer with about 50 attendees was held in Manhattan last Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at Morris + King Company.
A short keynote speech by Melissa Andrada, Brand and Digital Strategist at Wolff Olins, was presented as well as 30 second opportunities for job announcements.
NY Creative Interns Magical History
“NY Creative Interns events are always a success,” says co-founder Emily Miethner. “We connect a diverse group of creatives in a fun atmosphere and magic happens. These events are amazing because you never know where the relationships you start here will lead. When you’re trying to make it in a creative professional, that’s what matters most, people.”
Magic for College Students
One of the Hofstra students in attendance was senior public relations major Briana Mullery.
“My future is definitely on my mind so any opportunity to meet people is something I want to take advantage of,” said Briana. “I’m graduating in May so right now I’m really putting my feelers out for a job. The NY Creative Interns events are great opportunities for Hofstra students looking for internships or jobs.”
Magic for Recent Grads
Danielle Newman, another Hofstra alumna also at the mixer, has attended NY Creative Interns events since the group was founded two years ago and graduated last year in May 2011.
“I joined NY Creative Interns while I was still in school,” said Dani, a television and film major. “At the time I was interning full time at The Late Show with David Letterman and looking for smart and interesting people to connect with in the city. I didn’t have a job lined up for after graduation and had hoped NY Creative Interns would help me expand my network and meet people just a few years ahead of me, working in my industry.”
You could say that magic happened for Dani, as she currently works at Tumblr as an assistant.
