Aga Artka and Jenny Schrank to speak at ASID’s GoPRO/NYC

September 2nd, 2014 8:36 am

It’s been a while since we embarked on the book writing journey. We started in January of 2013, and just finished the manuscript last month. During the 18 months of this project that we are deeply committed to and hugely passionate about, people started to notice our efforts. And we couldn’t be more honored.

Jenny and I have been members of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) for many years. We both have served on the Wisconsin Chapter Board of Directors. We continue to be involved in different ways and enjoy helping new members see the benefits of the organization and the profession as a whole.

We wrote a book on personal branding, networking and strategic career development because we felt there was a gap between the knowledge you gain in school and the skills needed for real world success.  Our brands have helped us remain true to ourselves and our career goals through slowdowns, successes and obstacles on our career journeys. We realize that developing a brand or building a network is not an easy task. In fact, most young professionals shy away from uncomfortable situations that include self-promotion, meeting strangers or asking for help. We are here to help.

On Sept 18-19th, 2014 in New York City, we are going to address the importance of having a personal brand, the benefits of growing a trusted network and establishing a career goal that you are focused on. We believe that a career in interior design is a wonderful, life-long journey that offers endless possibilities. Let us show you how to take control of your career and move strategically towards professional success.

GoPRO/NYC is a two-day event designed specifically for emerging professionals in the field of interior design. It’s a chance for a selected number of young professionals to come together and realize their potential through educational sessions in five specific areas: PROfessional Development, PROcess, PROduct, PRO Bono and PROject.

As speakers at the GoPRO/NYC event, we are excited to be able to offer a Friends & Family discount to anyone who is interested in attending. Use the link to our most recent newsletter for a discount code.

We hope you decide to come to NYC with us. In fact, we encourage everyone to connect with us ahead of time (Aga’s LinkedIn profile and Jenny’s LinkedIn profile) and then say hello at the event. We are working hard to have our book published sooner rather than later and will try to have an update on that process at the event. If you are not able to attend, don’t you worry. We can keep you informed via email. All you have to do is subscribe to our Career Hungry Newsletter and watch your email for updates.
