E2C: Engaging Emerging Creatives

E2C re-envisions the campus recruiting experience for students and employers in the creative field. Join us for your chance to meet and recruit emerging creative talent, build your brand on campus, and network with other creative professionals.

E2C took place October 3-4, 2019, to coincide with the co-op recruiting cycle for the creative and design fields served by the university's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP).

Why Attend?

E2C gives you two days to meet and interact with some of the most talented and best-prepared design students in the country. Spot students to interview for co-op positions in the spring and summer, and get to know them outside the interview through a collaborative creative challenge and happy hour networking. Use the opportunity to build your brand on campus and promote your company and your co-op program. Network with DAAP co-op faculty and other creative professionals.

Your registration includes complimentary parking, box lunch both days, soft drinks and snacks. In addition, your company profile will be visible to UC students in Handshake from the time your registration is approved through the event dates.


Employer registration is now closed.
