Now in its 36th year, the IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop has earned the reputation of being one of the best ways for BIPOC students and recent grads to get a jump start in their careers, all while interfacing with top media companies for insights & open opportunities.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, IRTS is bringing this experience to you!
WHAT IS THE IRTS MULTICULTURAL CAREER WORKSHOP?
From 11am – 3pm ET each day,you will hear from some of our industry’s most dynamic professionals through a series of engaging panels, featured speakers, and Q&A sessions. Then, each weeknight from 6pm – 7pm ET, we will have a conversation with accomplished members of the IRTS community. The majority of our speakers were actually former attendees of IRTS programs such as this one – a testament to how valuable participating in this event can be!
Since media is ever-evolving and multifaceted, the panel and speaker topics are designed to introduce you to the various positions and opportunities within the industry. Conferees will learn about opportunities in advertising, content creation, digital media, journalism, marketing, media buying and planning, production, research, sales, and many more!
Following the Workshop, you will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive meetings with top media companies to learn about their work, mission, and entry level opportunities. Your resume will also be shared with our corporate partners, to be vetted for current and future internships and full-time positions.
