Employers have a chance to see, firsthand, the talent emerging from FIDM when they attend Open Portfolio Day, where the work of recent grads is showcased. With the help of Career Center Advisors, employers can inquire about these graduates, and in some cases, schedule interviews and make job offers, based solely on the portfolios each graduate prepared while a student at FIDM.
Over 100 portfolios are on display, representing student work from almost every major. Since the graduates are not present, their work must truly speak for itself, and the number of resumes employers take away is an indication that it does!
“Employers come to this event ready to hire our recent graduates,” says Career Center Director of Operations, Ray Gallego. “We've had recent grads get hired on the very same day!”
