The one week that stands between now and the fourth installment of the Coroflot Creative Confab looks to be a busy one, if we extrapolate from recent trends.
The morning workshops, for one, have filled up with astonishing speed; encouraging, since this is the first time we've expanded the schedule beyond the afternoon-panel-plus-reception of Confabs past. On the other hand, it means that if you wanted to attend the "Creating an Online Presence Worth Hiring" workshop, you are outta luck: it's full. Sorry.
If you're looking to learn about the other end of the hiring see-saw though, there's still room in Terra Dehnert and Corey O'Brien's "Subtle Art of Creative Hiring" workshop, and it's an impressive one. The two Aquent account managers have conducted over a thousand interviews with designers between the two of them, and drawn on this experience to create an exceptional workshop. Expect some extremely actionable insights on how to go about your own creative hiring process, and plenty of real world examples and hands-on exercises. Especially recommended for small business and studio owners eager to get some innovators on their team, but not sure where to start.
The afternoon panel discussion lineup continues to be spectacular, with creative hiring experts Emily Delmont of Google Creative Lab, John Foster of IDEO, Kate Gilman of 24 Seven, and Steve Johnson of LinkedIn.
The list of Sponsoring Employers and Recruiters isn't too bad either:
Registration is limited to 200, and well on its way to filling up.
