This class is designed for college students and recent grads who are looking for help finding their place (and a job, perhaps?) in the big city (or any city). Are you struggling to find a job you care about? Getting turned down and you don’t know why? In this class we’ll cover ways to reach out to people, balancing your search with social activities, how to find the best events, and the art of hustle. You’ll leave class feeling confident and prepared to find and meet people who will help you in the next stage of your career. Plus, you’ll have fun!

During class we will:

  • Discuss how to stand out in the sea of applicants
  • Uncover the best way to get informational interviews (ie meet cool people you admire)
  • Learn why going out is as important as emailing resumes
  • and more!

Classes consist of  about 60 minutes on the presentation, with the rest of the time for application of what you’ve learned and Q&A.

Class Reviews

“Emily is a great teacher because she’s genuine and passionate about what she’s talking about.”

“I made a couple new friends/contacts! I was surprised how effective a virtual event could be.”

“I love NY Creative Interns events because they teach professional principles while being light-hearted and casual. Everything is easier when you feel like you’re in a comfortable and welcoming environment.”

“Emily has tons of first hand experience when it comes to networking and making connections. This class provided some GREAT advice on all sorts of things from how to meet new people, find cool events or how to write an efficient email. The best part was Emily had many personal anecdotes throughout the class that she would share. I would definitely recommend this class to a recent graduate, it really gets you in the mindset you need to start reaching out and get stuff done!”
