On February 18–19 we will be using a virtual format for careerID Confab to ensure more meaningful networking opportunities for Institute of Design students and to make the event more efficient and customizable to visiting organizations.
The goal remains the same—for organizations to get to know our students, while sharing information about these organizations and the role of design within it. Organizations will also have the option to post open positions and have exclusive access to our students as candidates. Even if your organization doesn't have open positions due to COVID-19, it's worth your while to attend to get to know our students and help them stay connected with industry.
We built the new careerID Confab format based on the successful elements of our past events:
- Expanded roundtable conversations for each participating organization: We’ve multiplied our favorite roundtable discussions, providing each organization an opportunity to hold up to three roundtables on the day of their choice. We know that many organizations aren't currently hiring due to COVID-19. These roundtables are a great way to get to know ID talent and help our students stay connected to the design industry.
- Student interviews made easy: Traditional and informational interviews happen as best fits your schedule in the two weeks following the Confab. You will be able to respond to student applications, and invite students based on their resumes or your networking interactions.
- Less than three hours of your time: Our virtual experience prioritizes safety, eliminating travel and crowds.
