Immersion Day is a half-day event designed to give college students an insider’s look into life at an experience design agency. Students have the opportunity to connect with Effective professionals and network with their peers.

Effective hosts Immersion Day at our Denver and New York office locations every six months, coinciding with spring and fall college graduations. Our team spends half a day with these students, beginning with a tour of our space that leads into a panel discussion. Select Effective employees, representing research, design, writing, and creative technology, share their personal and professional experiences to provide guidance and answer any questions from these students who are about to begin careers of their own. The remainder of the time is filled with first-hand, informative activities, including shadow hours, portfolio and resume reviews, Workshop 101s, and helpful job interview tips and tricks.

The concept of Immersion Day was born from a plight that designers at Effective had experienced firsthand: it’s difficult to find the job you want without knowing anyone in the industry. Additionally, over the past two years, Effective received frequent requests from Denver design students for studio tours and job shadowing opportunities. There had not been a formal structure or cadence for hosting these students, so we decided to organize and operationalize a process where students could visit Effective, get immersed in our culture and the work we do, check out our space, and receive advice on how to start in the industry.
