They came. They saw. They had their portfolios reviewed.  On June 12th The Creative Group sponsored the 3rd Annual Self Branding and Shinola for over 75 attendees at FK studios. Danny Elchert, ex REBUS co-chair and mastermind behind the event, put together a blockbuster lineup of speakers that included Eduardo Nieuwenhuyzen, Sr. Director of Visual + Dimensional Design at Switch, Kay Cochran, Vice President/Creative Director of Rodgers Townsend, Tracy Fulton, Vice President, Director, Business Leadership from Momentum Worldwide, Dan Curran, President and Founder, 4ORCE Digital and Sharon Ayres, Vice President, Human Resources of Moosylvania.

The speakers ran through a ton of material relevant to the job searching process for young professionals. Eduardo and Danny gave an in-depth look into the timeline of the hiring process, Sharon offered some insightful tips into the softer side of maintaining good connections in the St. Louis advertising market, Tracy Fulton offered some very straight forward information on acting like you want a job, and Kay Cochran gave the writers in the crowd some good perspective on how to build their portfolio.

Following the lengthy speaker portion of the event, each attendee had an opportunity to have their portfolio and resume personally reviewed by a senior member of St. Louis’ advertising community. A big thanks needs to go out to all of those individuals who gave freely of their time. There were too many big names to mention, representing nearly all of St. Louis’ top shops.

Next up for REBUS is our July planning event. We’ll be looking for a few great volunteers to help chart our future. This meeting will encompass everything from design, video, and copy promoting future events, to the events that REBUS actually plans, to our volunteer needs for staging each event. If you are interested, please contact us or show up to the meeting. Look for updates on time/location coming soon!
