Coffee & Careers: The Digital Design virtual event held on October 20 was a collaboration with the First Year Experience, Career Services, and the Career Club. Students heard from three industry experts: Jose Garcia, Hostos Brand and Communications Associate in the Office of Communications within the President’s Office; Karen Hudson, Graphic Designer in the film and television industry and member of the United Scenic Artists, Union Local 829 of IATSE; and Shantriya James, Program Manager at Break Through Tech at The City University of New York. They spoke about their career trajectory, the benefits of completing an internship, and trending programs for students to learn like Adobe After Effects and other motion graphic software. Students had the opportunity to ask the speakers questions and get an inside look into the digital design field. Coffee & Careers is a professional development experience series launched in 2020 by Assistant Director of Career Development, Yvonne Rosario-Quiroz
