The BIC PiP Welcomes Recruiters Back to Campus to Meet 22 from ‘22

BIC is the only academic program with the chutzpah to give recruiters a sneak peek at portfolios prior to completion


Each Spring, our annual recruiting event, the BIC PiP, showcases the talents of soon-to-be graduates who present their Portfolios-in-Progress to a roomful of industry recruiters, talent seekers, and career catalysts. BICsters in the Management/Planning, Public Relations, and Creative Tracks use the PiP to not only expose their thinking to recruiters, but use the feedback to elevate their portfolios for BIC's Portfolio Thesis Defense in May. 
This year, the BIC PiP was back on campus for the first time since 2019 and students in the BIC Class of 2022 were inspired by an engaged group of recruiters from a plethora of companies. The amazing list included Daniela Acosta, DEI Manager at HUNTERFabio Barros, Associate Creative Director at D&G, Rachel Boyle, Recruiter at Mother New York, Lori Cereda, Director of Creative Talent at GSW, a Syneos Health Company, Craig Elimeliah, Executive Creative Director at VMLY&R, Felicia Geiger, Director Talent at Karla Otto, Joseph Golden, Director, Talent Acquisition at Omnicom Health Group, Stefanie Gomez, Associate Creative Director at VIRTUE Worldwide, Ryan Maloney, Head of Talent at StrawberryFrog, Sharon Mejia, Creative Recruiter at McCann, Michaela Morgan, VP, Talent Acquisition at BCW Global, Rajone Morris, Senior Recruiter from the community, Donna Renella, President at ABW Solutions, Inc., Michael Rodriguez, Talent Acquisition Strategist at Gradient Group, Amy Starkman EVP, Director of Talent BBDO, Nikki Talarico, Talent Acquisition at Golin New York, and Jamie Tkach, Director, Resource Management at APCO Worldwide
BIC is the only academic program with the chutzpah to give recruiters a sneak peek at portfolios prior to completion. This allows them to cultivate talent before the portfolios hit the market. During the two and a half hour event, recruiters from top agencies and companies had the opportunity to tap into the agile thinking, sharp skills, and dynamic personalities of 22 cross-disciplinary BIC students from the Class of 2022 as they went from table to table -- like speed dating, only with a professional spin. The lunchtime event was fueled by Dinosaur BBQ.

A big BIC thanks to all our recruiters, volunteers from the BIC Class of 2023, and to graduating BICsters for their energy, feedback, and — most of all — their curiosity. For those who missed BIC’s 2022 PiP Recruiting Event, there’s always next year...!
