Times are tough, and so is the job hunt.

After going through thousands of applications, a group of agency founders have decided to come together to give whoever needs it our two cents on how this can be done better.

What we will address:

  • Why 1 cover letter doesn't rule them all
  • How to present your portfolio
  • What to look out for and prep during the interview process
  • Delane Lim and the 7 interviews: is it acceptable to ask for work life balance?

This event is for you if you are looking for a job in

  • in a creative agency
  • a local SME

Come with questions, we'll try our best to answer all of them.
