Creative Professionals Career Day 2023 – Just Bruneians

Getting your foot in the door, or even part of the conversation, requires luck, timing and of course talent. Part of the thinking behind the Creative Professionals Career Day is to remove elements of luck and increase the possibilities of better timing through networking and preparation. Free half-day event included talks and activities to help aspiring and young creative professionals develop their career skills. Working creatives from Progresif, OddBox Pictures, Playquarters and Coffee Bean shared their insights and conducted 1-on-1 portfolio mentoring sessions. 

There was also a short talk on media literacy and online etiquette as part of the ASEAN Digital Literacy Programme.
