About the Virtual Design Fair

The “Virtual Design Fair” is an online career fair for students in and outside of the Interaction Design program at Sheridan College. People will have a chance to explore career options in design through questions and advice. Our goal is to bridge the gap between design students and industry professionals by creating a community and a learning environment through engaging workshops.
