Coroflot.com, the world's largest and most active job and portfolio site for creative professionals, is coming to San Francisco for a one day event: the Creative Employment Confab, on October 21.
The Confab is an informational and networking event of particular interest to designers and creative professionals in the Bay Area, especially those planning on doing creative hiring in the near future, or looking to learn about the hiring process for their own career development needs.
The afternoon session begins as a moderated one hour panel discussion, with recruiters and hiring directors from some of the planet's most innovative companies:
Recruiter, Google Creative Lab
Head of Talent and Organization, IDEO
Recruiter, 24 Seven, Inc.
Director of User Experience Design & Web Development, LinkedIn
The panel is followed by a half hour Q&A period, and a two hour reception, giving attendees the opportunity to meet with each other, and with the Employer Sponsors, including creative staffing agencies Aquent, 24 Seven and Filter Talent.
The optional morning session features a pair of concurrent workshops, one focused on creative hiring strategies, the other on building an online presence for job search purposes.
This will be the fourth Confab, in a series that's already hit Austin, NYC and Portland, and while the format is similar, we're expecting the San Francisco installment to be the largest by a long shot: attendance is expected to approach 200, including recruiters, studio managers, designers and creative workers from a range of disciplines, including interaction, user experience and web design.
$60 for the afternoon panel and reception
$85 with the optional morning session
