The Great Resume Debate
Tuesday, February 25th
What makes a great resume? It depends on who you ask, so we’re asking three seasoned creative recruiters what they think. Top recruiters including David Gurley of Wieden+Kennedy, Andy Shearer of adidas, and Rick Watson of Citizen describe what they look for, what they dislike, and what each considers a “great” resume. They’ll also share their favorite “Hall of Shame” stories. Let’s hope your resume is not one of them.
Big Brands? Big Deal!
Tuesday, May 20th
You hear it all the time. Portfolios showing big brand experience are better than those without. Big brands are cool right? They’re global after all, but does it really matter? And if it does, how do those of us without this experience overcome, or get it? We dispel the myths and expose who works at these big brands and how they got there. Leaders from Nike, Columbia, and adidas, all people just like you, tell all. Come hear their secrets.
That Bitch Ate My Lunch!
Tuesday, August 26th
We’ve all been there. The lunch in the work fridge that disappeared. The coworker drenched in perfume, or the one who doesn’t believe in deodorant and probably should. With skits showing our most dreaded work experiences, we’ll help you sort through how to navigate the dreaded, the scary, and the nudity of what happens when we go to work and our lunch is gone.
Pricing runs $20 per event for general admission and $10 per event for students (with valid ID). Attend the entire series for $45, or just $25 for students. Time, location and purchasing details are available here. In the meantime, check out photos and full audio of our last event.
