This summer for a limited time, SVA Career Development is offering classroom space one afternoon each week to be used as co-working space for alumni.  Bring your laptops or your sketchpads and come mingle, co-work or collaborate with your fellow alumni.  The time and space may be used for a variety of quiet activities including working on your job search, website and portfolio development, small business development, creativity or collaboration.  During these co-working time periods, Career Development counselors will be available for informal conversations and advice, as well as a limited number of one-on-one appointments.

(Please note that the classroom space cannot accommodate studio arts beyond sketching, i.e., no paints, charcoals or other potentially messy materials. Please do not bring any materials larger than 16”x20”.)

Space is limited, so be sure to reserve early. Sign up begins one week before each week's session. Reserve your spot at svacd.eventbrite.com
