Date Night 2016
21 October saw students from our interior design, graphic design and multimedia design faculties come out to pitch their portfolios to prospective employers.
The GDC Date Night is a firm favourite on the calendar with students buzzing with excitement and nerves at the prospect of their futures. Based on the model of “speed-dating”, interior design, graphic design and multimedia design students have 10 minutes to pitch themselves to each of the professionals from their industries around the room. Students rotate after each pitch to have a one-on-one with all the professionals. The Date Night is a great opportunity for students to secure their first job after graduation.
We had 15 professionals from the fields of graphic design, multimedia design and interior design join us at the event this year.
Feedback from the industry was appreciated as always and GDC couldn’t be prouder of its students.
