Arts Career Conversations: The Art of Tech

Thursday January 23, 2020
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Did you know that the skills you are gaining as an Arts student – communications, critical thinking, and collaboration – are all in high demand from technology companies? According to Bluewolf CEO, Eric Berridge, 65% of open job opportunities at Apple/Google/Facebook are non-technical: marketers, designers, product managers, HR specialists, and more. It’s no wonder why Forbes says the “Arts degree has become tech’s hottest ticket”.

Tech is not just for programmers anymore. In this flash mentoring experience, learn directly from Arts alumni how your BA or BFA can help you build a career in tech.
