About this event

With the industry booming and fresh designers flooding the job market daily, the gap between education and employment has never been more evident. How can managers mentor junior hires to maximum effectiveness?

Hiring junior talent can be daunting. Junior designers as a whole have uneven skill sets that are buried behind portfolios that all look the same. Once hired, managers often don’t know what these designers are capable of how to foster their success. Companies often wing it when it comes to growing their junior design staff, to the detriment of employee productivity, retention and ultimately product quality.

Luckily, there is a better way​!​ Danielle Malik and Billie Mandel have both devoted the last few years of their design careers as educators, mentors, and business owners to developing the next generation of designers. Danielle and Billie believe wholeheartedly that hiring junior is a great investment both in your design team and the industry as a whole. They demonstrate how to select qualified junior design candidates​ ​and share tips on how to coach these designers into greatness, growing your own mentoring skills along the way.​ ​You’ll leave with new skills, tools, and passion to invest in the future of their teams and the industry.
