Webcast: What comes next after school?

Part of the “AIGA Voices” series of webcasts featuring thoughtful and influential designers—including AIGA board members—speaking about a wide range of topics.

It is a time to shape your career as you keep learning new things and following your curiosity. In this webcast, Ethan Bodnar will talk about interviewing, getting your portfolio seen, internships, developing your personal brand, questions to keep in mind, setting goals for yourself and more. At the end of the webcast, Ethan will host a Q+A session and share additional resources with attendees.
