I first heard about this event from my housemate who is currently searching for a new graphic job within the photography/design sector. I followed along, also with her sister and her sister’s boyfriend, to support her and check the event out; as well as for the freebies!
This event is a creative fair held for those who are interested in startups and would like to see the many opportunities available in the IT & design sectors. There were many startup companies such as y-plan, Badoo, moo.com, King (the guys who created Candy Crush) and Mind Candy (Creators of Moshi Monsters).
There was also a lot of amazing freebies up for grabs plus the employees who allowed you to pick their brains :D I managed to collect a lot of free stuff but missed out on the tote bags and t-shirts because I wasn’t that interested in the IT development side of the company, so I didn’t chat to them. :( (or that I was shy/embarrassed to ask for a freebie tee…)
If you’re searching for a job within the design or IT sector I would suggest going to this fair and talking to the employers to get an idea of what you’re signing up for, plus to see if you’ll fit into the place. These fairs are just for that!
