Engage and Become Inspired Spring 2018!


RISD Careers invites you to join us for one, two or all three of our Design Portfolio Review events!

The Networking Reception, the Design Portfolio Review and Recruiting Day are exciting events that provide meaningful conversations, experiences, and connections between the professional design world and our talented RISD students! 

Networking Reception
Wednesday, March 14, 6:00 pm

All students and companies are invited to make networking connections at this free event that occurs the evening before the Design Portfolio Review.

Design Portfolio Review
Thursday, March 15, 12 noon - 5:00 pm

The Design Portfolio Review features one on one student portfolio reviews with juniors, seniors and graduate students only. The emphasis is on providing feedback on students’ work and presentation skills while also providing insights for reviewers on RISD talent that may be suited to their current or future hiring needs.

Recruiting Day
Friday, March 16, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Recruiting Day gives companies the opportunity to conduct formal interviews at the convention center on the day after the Design Portfolio Review.  Companies will post their position/s to ArtWorks in advance. Students will apply to these position/s for a chance to earn an interview on Recruiting Day.

FREE Profile Photos!

Complimentary student profile photos will be shot and produced by Rob Chron Photography in the student lobby. Photos will be taken on a first come first serve basis throughout the afternoon. Provided by your friends at RISD Careers.
