Another successful Recruiter Session is in the books!

The Brandcenter Class of 2024 displayed their portfolios for creative professionals and recruiters from agencies, brands and consultancies over two days last week. Second-year students took over the Brandcenter building and created personalized stations where recruiters viewed their work and networked with the soon-to-be graduates, the ultimate kickoff as they launch into their careers.

Representatives from an array of companies participated, with both in-person and virtual opportunities. New recruiters this year included CoStar Group, Disney, Peloton, Snap and SoFi, in addition to the wonderful folks we welcomed back such as Wieden+Kennedy, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Google, Anomaly, and McKinney. Local participants included CoStar, Brand Federation, CarMax, Familiar Creatures, Sylvain, Martin Agency, Ukrop’s, and Arts & Letters Creative Co. We were lucky to have over 25  Brandcenter alums come back to recruit on behalf of their employers.
