Don't Miss This Year's BIC PiP!!

Hey Talent Cultivators, Super Star Searchers, and Career Catalysts!!

It comes once a year. And THIS year, the BIC PiP is on Friday, March 16th. 

What’s a PiP? It’s BIC's Portfolio-in-Progress event — a one-day opportunity for recruiters to get a “sneak peek” at portfolios as they are in development. This gives industry reps the unique opportunity to give feedback to students two months before their Portfolio Defense in May. You can engage more substantively with students because the relationship is not transactional. You’ll not only be able to preview great talent before it hits the marketplace, but get to cultivate your ideal candidate: you’ll actually get to see your feedback in action at the next job interview. 
BIC is the only master’s degree program to teach branding and communications in an integrated way. The program is portfolio-driven which means that ALL students (not just art directors and writers, but managers, planners, and public relations practitioners) must create and defend a portfolio to professionals in order to graduate. Those portfolios are high-level and built over the course of the students’ two years in the program. 

Who are BICsters? Most of our students are working professionals, super-motived and savvy. They’ve Idea catalysts. Culture creators. Social Do-Gooders. Communication strategists. Creative managers. PR activators. Conceptualizers. Wordsmiths. Designers. Brand galvanizers. Problem solvers. Forward thinkers. Lateral thinkers. Deep thinkers. Non-Bloviators... BICsters have earned undergraduate degrees at schools such as Yale, RISD, Dartmouth, Hunter, Lehigh, Rochester, Bard, and Science Po. Since BIC's launch in 2013, BICsters have won five MAIPs, nine The LAGRANT Foundation Scholarships, and two GOLD Pencils at The ONE Show. 

BIC alums have rocked it at communications agencies such as Droga5, Y&R, HunterPR, Berlin Rosen, FutureBrand, 360i, Y&R, Cohen & Wolf, TBWA/Chiat/Day, RooneyPartners, and BBDO as well as companies such as Nestle, NYTimes Brand Studio, SAP, Johnson & Johnson, Vox, and the NAACP.
