The Metcalfe Group at the 2018 CIA Career Fair

This week we were pleased to attend the first annual career fair at the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA). The Metcalfe Group was a Gold Level sponsor of the event, which was well attended by students across all disciplines. A tour of the school revealed the diversity of the curriculum, facility and students. It is evident everywhere that the environment fosters creativity in alignment with the different disciplines.

We connected with many capable students, primarily Industrial Design majors, interested in a career in product design as candidates for a variety of opportunities at our firm. The energetic students conveyed the details of their education at CIA, shared impressive portfolios, and described future areas of interest.

From our many years of experience designing products for a variety of markets, we were able to provide insights into our friendly, creative culture, our multidisciplinary development process, and what a student might expect when working for an independent design firm.

Looking forward, we anticipate strengthening the relationship with CIA so we can both benefit. We are confident there will be CIA students in some capacity in our future.
