Come hear Jenn Savoie, our Office of Career Services representative, talk about careers in the design/innovation space. Confused about how to recruit for these jobs? Don’t know what the actual process is like? Want to ask students who did summer internships or or past roles in design about their experiences? We will crowdsource questions and have a panel of 1st and 2nd year students answer them for you. Topics include: summer internship experiences, previous roles related to design and innovation, how they got their jobs, what they liked/didn’t like, and their advice for recruiting.

Please submit your questions and “like” questions submitted by fellow club members on this Google Doc. (http://whartondesignclub.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=d073e07989ca2b0053218c9de&id=9942503000&e=4b88744fb2) We prioritize these questions with the most likes... so get started now!
