Each company will have the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion on one of the event themes, which are selected in collaboration with students. Companies can select their topic preferences and identify a representative while registering. Topics are intentionally broad, which gives each company representative an opportunity to share their interpretation and perspective. Use this time to build your brand on campus by discussing your company while adding to a rich conversation alongside other professionals in creative fields. Companies are not required to present; simply indicate your preference when you register.
Take advantage of your time on campus to interview students for co-op positions! You can pre-select candidates from PAL referrals, schedule interviews with students you meet at the event, or offer open interview signups. Indicate your preferences when you register, and a representative from our team will contact you.
Not actively recruiting or ready to interview? Consider conducting informal portfolio reviews to meet students and identify potential talent for the future while helping them build and refine their professional skills.
In 2018, E2C donated more than 1000 hours of creative work to local nonprofit Community Matters.
Community Matters sprung from the will of the community in Lower Price Hill to address the overwhelming disparity in access to opportunities for residents. Our neighbors felt trapped in an environment with 68% living in poverty, 66% unemployment rate, 90% renters without access to truly dignified housing, and the second-lowest life expectancy in Cincinnati. Our driving goal is to remove barriers to opportunity. Our programs are designed to create opportunities, empower people to engage in the community development process, establish ways to serve together, and re-build the local economy through social entrepreneurship. We believe that community matters; our community connects us and gives us our sense of place. We work to help our residents who struggle with lack of education, drug addictions, and a need for affordable housing.
