MHCI+D Career Conference 2022

This year, on July 11 + 12, we will host our seventh annual career conference!

This is a fantastic opportunity for industry and students to interact one-on-one and get to know each other. Industry partners do not have to bring job openings — this is about providing an opportunity to practice interviewing, and building relationships with our graduates and they with you.

Schedule and Activities

Students and industry representatives will meet one-on-one in Zoom breakout rooms for practice sessions. You’ll be asked to provide feedback on students’ portfolio presentations, whiteboard exercises, and/or to conduct brief initial interviews. Students get to know a variety of individuals from a range of employers,whether or not there is a current job opening. Our goal is to maximize quality contact and minimize job-specific pressure for both sides. Again, it really is about building relationships.

This year we’ll be meeting over two half-days, July 11 + 12, between the hours of 1pm – 6pm PDT. We ask for a minimum 2-hour commitment on one of these days please. And if you have more time than that, great!

You can register for the conference here.
