The One Club’s Here Are All The Black People is our highly anticipated annual multicultural creative career fair. The one-day event provides multicultural students, recent graduates, and creative professionals who are interested in exploring careers in advertising and design the opportunity to showcase their talent to top agencies in the industry. AND YES, IT”S OPEN TO EVERYONE.
HAATBP was created after a panel discussion between advertising greats, Jimmy Smith and Jeff Goodby, as they discussed the lack of diversity in the creative departments in advertising agencies. At which time, Jeff asked, “Where Are All The Black People?” Jimmy, Jeff, and The One Club decided to answer the question and launched the event, “Here Are All The Black People.” HAATBP provides real-world solutions to the lack of diversity in the advertising and design industry’s creative departments. This year, we are opening this event up to aspiring Strategist and Account Planners/Managers.
During this one-day event, participants have unprecedented opportunities to interview, network, learn, interact with and gain invaluable knowledge from top creative professionals, as well as attend portfolio-building workshops, portfolio reviews, and participate in our popular live “elevator” pitch, which awards the winners with interviews with all of the sponsoring agencies. Many participants have walked away from the event with a second interview or a lead to an internship opportunity.
HAATBP is fully sponsored by agencies and companies looking to hire diverse creative talent.
