Creative Internships and Employment in NH @ WBC Office Suites | Manchester | New Hampshire | United States
The creative economy is constantly changing. The creative skills required for employment in New Hampshire are constantly changing. Employers now consider avid social media marketing a regular requirement for anyone on the creative industry. A few years ago the expectation shifted from just the Adobe Creative Suite to technological competency in things like web and email design. More recently skills in social media advertising, Search Engine Optimization. 3D Modeling software, programming and 3D printing are required. These are all skills added in the last few years. Do employers really require these skills? How does one obtain these skills?
 
What if you have these skills, but it seems like everyone else does as well. How do you stand out from the crowd? How do you get through endless HR applications and talk to the hiring decision maker? Is in-person networking really the best way to get a job?
 
How do employers capture creatives with the required technological talents? How do they keep young creatives in New Hampshire?
 
This four person panel will discuss these topics and the questions you bring. The panel will feature a Vice President from Calypso Agency in Portsmouth, a design Intern from Manchester, an recruiter from a large Manchester based biotech company that is currently hiring creatives and a career services individual from a large New Hampshire University.
 
The panel discussion begins at noon with doors opening at 11:30a. Bring a lunch and your creative employment and internship questions for the panelists. We will finish promptly at 1:00p.
 
The discussion is being hosted by WBC on Elm Street in Manchester, NH. WBC Office Suites offers a shared, community-driven workspace for location-independent workers. It exists because of you and for you. Co-working spaces are one place to look for guidance, as they regularly offer networking events, training programs, social events, and even summer camp.
