Engage and Become Inspired in 2020!

RISD Careers invites Employers to join us for one, two or all three of our events!

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

Networking Reception
Tuesday, February 25, 6:00 - 8:00 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
Wednesday, February 26, 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.

Interview Day
Thursday, February 27, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Interview 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.
