Monday Motivation | Students, Don’t Sleep on Conferences!

Did you know that many conferences in the creative industries welcome students? Some conference organizers, like the College Art Association, offer “Pay-As-You-Wish” rates, affordable day rates, or student discounts. Your university’s Career Services office may also be able to help. Take advantage of these opportunities to network with others in the field you’d like to join and learn about their career paths. A few prop tips once you’re there: introduce yourself to fellow attendees and representatives from organizations that are tabling or presenting (they’ll be happy to talk to you!), ask them about their work, get a business card, and follow up!
