Kids looking to “make it” as a graphic designer (good luck!) may want to consider heading down to Orlando next month for the Photoshop World Conference. It’s a gathering of Photoshop’s best and brightest, as well as those who employ them. So, you go down there, futz around for a bit, exchange e-mail addresses and hope that one day one of those folks offer you a job. Sounds like CES and SXSW.
Students should pay particular attention to a couple of deals currently on tap for the show. Show a proper student ID (here’s mine! feel free to pirate it in order to get in) and you can get into the three-day conference for $150; regular price is $700, so you’re totally saving a couple of dollars.
You can also download, for free, a pass to the Tech Expo part of the show, which is a little more general in its goals. Companies like Canon and Microsoft will be there telling you all about the next generation of things… coming soon!
Photoshop world runs from April 2-4 and the Tech Expo goes from April 3-4.
