You’re finally feeling slightly settled into the big city, navigating the subway system with ease and declaring all of your favorite spots. Now it’s time to make the most of your summer — whether an intern or a full-time creative looking to take advantage of the extra hours of sunshine each day.

Is it appropriate to have coffee meetings with co-workers other than your boss? When is it right to ask for a review, and how do you go about doing it? If you’re job hunting, how do you actually land one of those informational interviews, and how does that differ from a regular interview? Keynote speaker Barry Rahmy and John Twomey of ESPN will share their insight on making the most of your current situation.

Join us for our other Summer Series Mixers: June 27: New to New York & August 8: Maintain & Grow Your Network.
