A virtual format makes the event more efficient and customizable for organizations.

Get to know our students while sharing information about your organization and the role of design within it. You also have the option to post open positions. Get to know our students and stay connected with other leaders.

This format builds on the successful elements of our past events:

  • Expanded roundtable conversations for each participating organization: We’ve multiplied our favorite roundtable discussions, providing each organization an opportunity to hold up to 3 roundtables on the day of their choice. Whether your organization is horoing or not - these roundtables are a great way to get to know ID talent and help our students stay connected to different industries.
  • Student interviews made easy: Traditional and informational interviews happen as best fits your schedule in the two weeks following the Confab. Respond to student applications and invite students to interview based on their resumes or your networking interactions.
  • Less than three hours of your time.

For our Fall 2021 event, all of our registration will happen exclusively on Handshake (links at top). There are a few things to note about registration:
