South District Design Conference 2018 | Young Professionals Career Clinic

The first few years out of design school can be the most challenging in an industrial designer’s career. Many young designers feel like they are in "limbo,” no longer a student but not feeling quite like a professional. Sound familiar?

This year at the South District Design Conference (SDDC) we will be offering a Young Professionals Career Clinic. This clinic, running concurrent to the student portfolio review, will be made up of 30-minute sessions. Each will be a one-on-one mentoring session with a practicing industrial designer. You will have time to have your portfolio reviewed; talk about individual goals; and receive honest, personalized feedback, advice and guidance on skills building, suggestions for potential industries or jobs, networking, etc.

The sessions are limited and will require advance sign-up. Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • Are a current IDSA member (note there is discounted membership available for young professionals).
  • Are registered for the SDDC.
  • Have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree in industrial design within the past 5 years.
  • Come prepared with your updated professional portfolio and resume.
