There are consistent internal and external factors that are shaping career paths for creatives and designers. We can choose to take an active role in our own paths and shape the future of the industry. This intimate three-part event series will be full of discussions, community, and action plans. Attend all three events for the full experience or the individual event closest tied to your journey.
Workshop Two: Where Do You Want to Go/Connecting
You have a few potential routes to get you started and now it’s time to find some pit stops, mid-points, and tourist attractions to see along your route.
It’s time to leverage your community to learn what you don’t know. There are multiple reports that estimate 60-80 of jobs are found through professional networking and how often have you heard someone having a job that you never knew existed. Networking continues to evolve and the hidden job market is growing.
Join AIGA and TARRA as we discuss how to authentically build a community or network to help you grow and give back. We’ll discuss strategies on the information interview, qualifying networking events, and making meaningful connections. We’ll work to answer “How do I make authentic connections, support others, and grow socially in a mutually beneficial way?”
TARRA is a network of people, ideas, and resources designed to cultivate a new generation of entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders.
Whether you are building a company, climbing the corporate ladder, expanding a creative pursuit, or returning to work, TARRA is your place to find the tools, network and resources to thrive.
Through community, events, networking and education, we create opportunities for members to meet, learn and invest in each other.
