Does your resume look like the same Word template that was created when Boyz II Men was on the Billboard charts? Is your portfolio gathering dust on a shelf or just not quite where you want it? Does your cover letter get canned before the call to action? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in good company. We’re here to help.

REBUS and GIMA present Self-Branding and Shinola, sponsored by The Creative Group. This special REBUS event will be a night of speakers, networking, learning and, of course, food and drinks with featured topics around the dos and don’ts of self-branding, resume writing, portfolio polishing, interviewing as well as personal critiques from leading industry professionals in the St. Louis area.

This isn’t your average career fair and this isn’t just for designers and writers. It’s a behind the scenes look at what Account Directors, Creative Directors, Interactive and Video Producers, and HR Professionals are looking for when seeding through the hundreds of seemingly identical resume and portfolio submissions.

With a guest list limited to 60, RSVP’s are crucial. The first 25 people to RSVP are guaranteed one-on-one time with industry professionals to review portfolios or resumes. The rest will be on a first-come first-served basis.


Networking starts at 5:30.  Featured discussions at 6:30.  Cost is only $20.

“REBUS opens the door for aspiring individuals to meet, mingle and learn from key players in the advertising industry from agencies to vendors. I have recommended many young folks to attend and have seen them get job offers as a result of doing so. St. Louis is lucky to have such a passionate and dedicated group in our community and I highly recommend that you hop on the bus.”

Kathy McGuire-Mullins

“Having been involved from just about the beginning and serving over 2 years as co-chair of REBUS, I have watched our organization grow up and blossom into a smart and professional group with a devoted and motivated membership. I am proud to say that REBUS has established itself as a fun, educational, and inspirational organization for professionals of all levels offering events unlike anything else you can find in St. Louis – and they continue to get better every month! With over four years behind us now, it is safe to say that the St. Louis Advertising/Design community is better off for having and embracing our organization. I’ve benefited immensely from my involvement in REBUS and if you’re free the second Tuesday of the month, then check out the next event – interesting people, a sneak peek at an agency, a bit of educational content, and yummy food and drink – it’s a no lose situation.”
