SYP Careers Speed Dating Evening
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Hold onto your hats, the SYP Careers Speed Dating event is back and this year it's bigger than ever before!
Following the success of the previous year's events we've decided to take another shot at helping you find a job you'll love.
Due to popular demand we've doubled our venue capacity and we've doubled the number of our speakers, so there's even more publishing experts to network with from all areas within the industry. You'll get the chance to mingle with the publishing professionals whose job you've had your eye on and will get the chance to be on the other side of the interview table for a change!
You'll make your way round the tables, meeting industry professionals from all areas of publishing including agents, editorial, marketing, sales, publicity, production, design, rights and digital.
Whether you're looking to make a move into your next role but want to learn more from someone already doing it, or whether you're looking for your first publishing job and can't decide which role would suit you, we've got it covered! Join us for a fantastic night of drinks, nibbles and publishing chat!
Please note: drinks will be available to purchase from the venue bar throughout the night via card payment only.
Venue: 6th Story, Carmelite House, 50 Victoria Embankment, London, EC4y 0DZ
