NextGen Career Development Day

  • USG Corporation 550 West Adams St, 18th Floor Chicago, IL 60661 (map)

Our ongoing mission for the I-NOMA NextGen Career Development Day is to provide a platform for ALL of our tremendously talented membership to connect with professional design firms and advance their careers.

After a networking lunch (included with the event), our program will begin with a panel discussion featuring Robbie Brundige, Deon Lucas, and Jason Pugh where they will share valuable professional insights gathered throughout their careers as practicing architects.

Following the panel, attendees are invited to take part in a round-robin circuit of resume and portfolio reviews with industry professionals, mock interviews with Chicago design firms, and professional headshots. In past years, our list of participating firms has included Gensler, Cambridge Co, HOK, KOO LLC, StudioGang, JAQ Stuido, Johnson & Lee, Urban Works, and SmithGroup. We expect many of these firms to return and hope to add to the list making this an invaluable opportunity to get one-on-one contact with many prestigious Chicago firms.

To ensure you get the most out of this event, attendees are asked to bring 15 copies of their resume and sample portfolio pages.
