On Tuesday, January 25th. there is also a $15 session called Strategies for Remote Interviewing. That session can be found at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/strategies-for-remote-interviewing-tickets-239328627367 This one is a little pricier so do this only if you feel you can invest that much.

For those of you registered in Spring 2022, you are required to attend 2 networking events as part of my class. Any  of these AIGA events would count as one of those events. And do not feel compelled to spend any money to attend a networking event. There will be plenty of free events coming up like the Firebelly Studio Tour, both at the AIGA and at other professional Associations around the country and the world.
