Our workshop for helping creatives navigate virtual job boards is coming to San Francisco Design Week
San Francisco Design Week, the West Coast’s largest design festival, is back! But this time in virtual form.
Join us and other prominent creative agencies from San Francisco and beyond for 5 days of workshops, lectures, DJ sets and art events from anywhere in the world.
As AIGA SF and SFDW partners we will be hosting a panel discussion titled “Navigating virtual job boards as a creative“, aimed at helping creatives elevate their careers in this era of video interviews and remote portfolio screenings.
Young creatives are entering a job market that looks very different to how it did six months ago. Internships are being paused and roles cancelled, switched or transformed as the world comes to terms with remote working.
Our 1-hour workshop is dedicated to creatives looking for gigs amidst this shifting professional landscape.
The first half will teach you the newest tools and techniques for creating a digital portfolio that helps you stand out. One that tells your story in a beautiful and engaging way. The second half will challenge your personal relationship to your work, your ideology, values and individual design process. We’ll explore what a portfolio says about you to others and where it can go wrong.
The session starts at 9AM PST on Friday, 7/19.
