Professional Networking For Design Students

As a way to support graduating design students during an unprecedented and challenging period of time, design leaders in the St. Louis community have generously offered to schedule virtual meetings with students to discuss the state of design during COVID-19.

These conversations are intended to help build connections in the community and offer opportunities to talk about best practices in preparing for internships, employment opportunities, and working remotely.

Students are invited to reach out to the design professionals and community leaders listed below to schedule virtual interviews. Students are expected to take the lead in setting up meeting links and preparing interview questions. Please also be prepared to share your online portfolios.

The board of AIGA Saint Louis offers our gratitude for this generous support of our students.
