IRD is designed to assist you and your organization’s talent needs in various creative endeavors and industries. Each registered employer participant will have the opportunity to meet with students individually for 15 minutes of interviews/portfolio reviews from all creative majors at Otis College of Art and Design. Once you register students will have the opportunity to select your organization and session time to meet with you during the event based on the position(s) you are seeking to fill.
