Event description

Description

InSight is the first Student Portfolio Review of its kind in Hampton Roads. This all-day event aims to equip emerging designers with the awareness, confidence, and tenacity necessary to thrive in the professional world.


Keynote

"Is Getting Hired More Science or Art?"

Matt Paddock | General Manager @ Grow

What to do when your job hunt feels less textbook and more like an episode of some reality dating / survival show? There are lots of ways to market yourself but many of them feel inauthentic, especially when we'd all just like to be appreciated for our skills and experience. The job you land out of school could be a throwaway, or it could define your career for several decades. The good news is that you have a lot of choice and power, and making the transition from student to real-world designer is more science than art.
