Recruitment, networking, industry jobs

Our Graphic Design program at Johnson County Community College is quite rigorous. Even though we are an Associates program, we compete for the same jobs as the local art & design colleges with four-year degrees. The Kansas City design and advertising community is spectacular! Many of our students are already involved in this community, either through professional groups like the American Institute of Graphic Arts KC chapter, or the American Advertising Federation of KC, or through their internships that they got thanks to our professors and advisors. 

The Graduating/Recruitment Showcase started in 2000, and is highly anticipated by both professionals and students. Our soon-to-be graduates start planning the show in the fall, sketching out ideas and brainstorming for a brand that will be applied throughout the campaign. From the postcards we send out to the creative professionals, to the website we create to exhibit our graduates' online presence, we strive to "look professional" and showcase our best .  

The showcase is designated to be on the same night as other schools' showcases so that professionals need only go out one night to look for talent. Alumni of our program will come to our showcase to catch up with their classmates as well as recruit the talent of the graduating class.

NOTE: Donations do not contribute to students immediately. Primarily, donations will go to paying for the behind the scenes expenses of hosting the show, such as catering and venue rental. Once those expenses have been met, the remaining funds will be divided by the graduating class to help pay for their personal expenses like printing their business cards and resumes.

Half way done!
