NEW YORK, NY (JUNE 28, 2017) – Gone are the days of ‘Devil Wears Prada’ internships that revolve around coffee-fetching and making copies; today’s ambitious college woman knows that to be a leader in her chosen field, she has to be constantly learning, growing, and honing her skills—which is why this year’s attendee list has more than doubled for Her Campus’s 6th annual Her Conference, taking place July 22-23 in New York City.
The leading career development conference for college women, focused on media, marketing, journalism, PR, entrepreneurship, social impact, tech, and leadership, Her Conference provides two days of incredible programming, with this year’s 100+ speakers hailing from top employers including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Buzzfeed, Business Insider, Google, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Edelman, J.Crew, Forbes, The United Nations, Simon & Schuster, MTV News, ABC News, Condé Nast, NBCUniversal, Refinery29, and more, sharing their proven advice on how to land coveted dream jobs at these industry-leading companies. Panels cover everything from nabbing that elusive entry-level editorial job, to breaking into the marketing industry, getting a sneak peek behind the scenes at a real PR job, writing a book, freelancing full-time, starting her own business, making it in tech, working in the competitive world of social media, as well as building self-confidence, networking, and negotiating skills.
Attendees will also hear from keynote speakers Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario, acclaimed actress Aja Naomi King, the National Co-Chairs of this year’s historic Women’s March, celebrated TV journalist and women’s empowerment activist Gretchen Carlson, POPSUGAR’s Founder & President, Lisa Sugar, and Founder & Editor-in-Chief of MuslimGirl.com, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh.
