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 takes place over two weekdays in early October, to coincide with the co-op recruiting cycle for employers and students in the creative and design fields served by the university's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning.
Day one of E2C kicks off with a design blitz benefiting a local non-profit. More than 400 creative students and professionals work in interdisciplinary teams to complete a variety of design challenges with tangible outcomes for the non-profit partner. See students in action to observe how they think, work, and perform. The blitz wraps up with presentations of student work and a happy hour with the chance to network with students, faculty, and other creative professionals over drinks and appetizers.
Symposium Panels and Interviews
Day two offers more formal interaction with students in interviews, portfolio reviews, and panel discussions. Build your brand on campus, promote your company and co-op program, and share your perspective on a variety of design topics. Take advantage of your time on campus to interview students you’ve met at the event or pre-arranged through our office, conduct portfolio reviews, or continue the conversation from a panel presentation.
