MHCI+D Career Conference

On June 28, 2019, we will host our annual career conference, where industry and students interact one-on-one and get to know each other. Far from a traditional career fair with employers at tables and students in long lines, the MHCI+D Career Conference is not about who has jobs, but rather asks: what type of relationship do you want to build with our graduates and they with you?

Get to Know Our Students

MHCI+D graduates are well versed in the end-to-end user-centered design process including in-depth study in user research, ideation, prototyping and design communication tools and methods for a broad set of technology platforms. Our alumni have launched their careers in the top technology, consulting and start-up organizations nationwide. In addition, a project and team based curriculum emphasizes project management and team collaboration skills critical to succeeding in fast-paced, interdisciplinary environments. We encourage you to get to know MHCI+D students and alumni as part of your recruiting efforts by reviewing their profiles on our website here .

Schedule and Activities

The Conference begins at noon, with an informal lunch buffet. Then students and employers meet one-on-one in private settings for practice sessions. Employers will be asked to provide feedback on portfolio presentations and  whiteboard exercises, or conduct brief initial interviews. Students will respond to these and get to know employers and recruiters, whether or not there is a current job opening. Our goal is to maximize quality contact and minimize job-specific pressure for both sides. Spontaneous networking is available throughout the afternoon, which concludes with a networking happy hour (refreshments provided).

How to Participate in the Next MHCI+D Career Conference
