AIGA NY's Annual Job Fair

About this Event

Meet creative companies helping you take your first steps in the design industry.

Are you a design student or new graduate? Join us for AIGA NY’s 4th annual mini-job fair! Meet reps from New York’s top creative companies and studios. Find out what a typical day is like for their designers and hear what creative directors are looking for in new designers like you.

It's speed networking meets the design industry and not another portfolio review. Come by, introduce yourself, and discover where to take your first steps in the design industry.

AIGA NY board members Caspar Lam, Janet Esquirol and Jarrett Fuller will co-host.

If your company is interested in participating, please contact Stacey Panousopoulos.

Event Series: Work in Progress

AIGA NY Student Job Fair is part of the Work in Progress event series. These events are focused on the creative process, personal development and professional development. They aim to give a peek behind the curtain and expose failure as a valuable experience.

The program is organized by AIGA NY in collaboration with the School of Art, Media, and Technology at The New School.

Attendee FAQ's

What should I expect? The purpose of the Job Fair is to meet and connect with people who work at a variety of different companies and learn about their design culture. You should expect conversations to be brief (5 minutes or less) on what it’s like to work for the company. AIGA NY will also have a booth staffed with talented designers and educators for attendees to ask about career advice.

Can I come if I’m not a student or recent graduate? You’re more than welcome to attend but do know that the event is geared towards our student and emerging designer community.

Should I bring my portfolio? No. The purpose is for information gathering and not a time to pitch to companies. You are welcome to follow up with the representatives afterwards.

No portfolios? What should I bring? You are welcome to bring your printed resumes, business cards, and list of questions for the representatives. Common topics include hiring procedures, timeframes, and qualities the company looks for in a designer.

What time should I arrive? The Job Fair will be open from 12-4pm. Feel free to come anytime during the fair.

How many people will be attending? We have about 250-300 attendees which means lines are likely to be long. We appreciate your patience!

What should I wear? The Job Fair is a casual event with no need for formal wear. Just be yourself!

Should I do any preparation? Yes! Review the companies that are attending and come prepared with a list of questions for the companies you would like to approach first.

Are refreshments provided? No, but you’re welcome to bring non-alcoholic beverages.
