We need your help figuring out the best way to market our May workshop programs to students. Staff frequently uses the term "professional practice" to describe these topics and activities but we don't know if that terminology resonates with students. We're looking for a vocabulary that will appeal to their needs.

Workshops topics for May events will include:

- Writing about work

- Commissions

- Business, accounting, and taxes

- Studio visits

- Teaching

- Web presence

- Writing proposals

- Documenting work

Target audience:

- Graduating students who are leaving SAIC and starting their careers, and students who have an active interest in furthering their professional practice
