Our old friends at core77.com and coroflot.com have organised another in their series of Creative Employment Confab events, this time at the Autodesk Gallery at One Market Street in San Francisco on 21st of October and I’m a bit gutted I never get to attend these things, because they always look interesting, whether that’s in Austin (for SxSW), New York (during Design Week), and Portland.
The format will be similar to previous events, with an afternoon panel discussion covering topics creative hiring, followed by a reception which mixes design directors, recruiters, and creative professionals in an environment tailor made to encourage network-building and knowledge-sharing. New for the SF date will be an optional morning session, offering a pair of concurrent workshops, one directed at job-seekers, and the other at talent-seekers.
Confirmed panelists are:
- John Foster, Head of Talent and Organization at IDEO
- Kate Gilman, Recruiter at 24 Seven, Inc.
- Steve Johnson, Director of User Experience Design & Web Development at LinkedIn
- Additional panelists will be announced as they are confirmed.
The panel will be moderated by Coroflot Editorial Director Carl Alviani, and followed by Q&A with the audience. it’s 60 bucks to get in (85 if you fancy the optional morning session). Registration is here.
If you’re in the Bay area, pop along. Looks sweet. If not, there’s some analysis, photos and video from previous Confabs (more commentary and video of the entire Portland panel can be found on the Creative Seeds blog). And say hi to Carl for me. I don’t think he’s speaking to me after I posted a two year old press release when I covered Core’s 3D CAD tips while he was on vacation 😉
