Photos + Recap: NY Creative Interns Kickoff Meetup!

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…event recap and photos! Well folks, I think it’s safe to say that the NY Creative Interns Kickoff Meetup was a success! We had a great turnout. Lots of fun was had and many connections were made. Our great giveaways, from Boba Fett was a Freelancer t-shirts to dot grid journals, flew off the shelf as people arrived early! During “One Minute Internship Announcements” we heard from the diverse companies who had representatives present speak about their internship opportunities. A very special thanks to our “One Intern, One Pro, One Org: Three Awesome Stories” speakers Michael Karnjanaprakorn, Phi Pham, and Lindsay Chan. They shared their interesting stories and dished out some great advice to a captive audience. We’re looking forward to going through all your feedback to help make out next event even better! If you were there and have two minutes to spare, fill out our super short survey.

Below are some crowd shots but we also have more amazing/hilarious shots from the photo booth by Galo Delgado. Head over to our Facebook page to see them!
