Join us for a Free workshop at the New York Festivals, Thursday, May 19th from 2:30 - 4:00.

There are a lot of people out there with killer portfolios, all trying to land their dream jobs. How do you stand apart in a herd of potential superstars? Your ability to make things happen—to bring your ideas and your personal passion projects to life—will give you an advantage. You'll be the one they remember.

"The goal of this workshop is to help you develop a big idea that will get you noticed."

The session is facilitated by Pippa Seichrist, Cofounder of Miami Ad School. The panelists, Miami Ad School graduates, each have an interesting story about what they created that got them noticed.
