Event Postponed

In light of the killing of George Floyd and the current events and social unrest in Minneapolis and St. Paul, this event will not be held tonight, May 28, 2020. We will reschedule in the near future. 

AIGA MN urges everyone in the design community and in our broader communities to stay safe, care for each other, and apply your talents and abilities to helping design a better world for all people. 

Finding work in a virtual world

As a student or emerging designer, starting off your design career and presenting yourself and your work in the best way possible is always challenging. During the current stay-in-place restrictions, it is even more difficult. 

  • How do you network, connect, or meet people in the design community when you can’t meet up in person?
  • How do you find and apply for positions virtually?
  • How do you interview, virtually, over video conferencing? How do you show your portfolio? How can you make your best, first impression?

We’re here to help

Your Virtual Foot in the Door is a virtual panel presentation of hiring experts who will address the needs of students and emerging designers trying to find work. Moderated by AIGA MN Director of Education, Bert Lee, the panel will address questions about experience, portfolios, networking, video interviews and much, much more. 

Stay tuned for details.
