Allison's Presentation

Start at the Top: Getting Your First Design Job in Tech

When you have no work experience under your belt, how do you show employers you’d still be a great design hire? I’ll discuss my experience hiring and getting hired at tech startups like Dropbox, Codecademy, and Treehouse. I’ll also identify the characteristics that signal to employers you have an explosive trajectory—and make it easy for them to say, “Yes!”

Incredibly supportive sponsors that we love

We think sponsorship should be more than just a link and logo on a website. If you're looking to put your sponsorship dollars to use we have a few pretty nifty ideas to get you noticed and be a fun experience for our attendees. If you aren't boring you should contact us.
