Get Worked Up is a one-day conference for emerging and student designers. This conference is part of the AIGA Emerge initiative focused on designers who are just launching their careers to those who have up to five years of experience in the field. Participants will have the opportunity to: (1) meet, interact and collaborate with their Upstate New York Peers; (2) Sharpen design skills during the hands-on design workshop; (3) prepare to dive deeper into the design profession with talks on the importance of finding a mentor, public speaking, the business of design, landing a job, and being involved in the design community; (4) Q&A about the design profession with the speakers -- don't be shy, ask what you really want to know.
