MHCI+D Career Conference

This year, on July 20 + 22, we will host our fifth annual career conference!

This is a fantastic opportunity for industry and students to interact one-on-one and get to know each other. It’s not about who has jobs, it’s about building relationships with our graduates and they with you.

Schedule and Activities

Students and industry representatives will meet one-on-one in private Zoom breakout rooms for practice sessions. You’ll be asked to provide feedback on students’ portfolio presentations, whiteboard exercises, or to conduct brief initial interviews. Students get to know individuals from a variety of employers, as well as 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. Again, it really is about building relationships.

This year we’ll be meeting virtually over two half-days, July 20 + 22, in 2-hour shifts between the hours of 1pm – 7pm. We ask for a minimum 2-hour commitment on one (or both!) days please.

You can register for the conference here.
