What is Hustle Summit?

 

Hustle Summit is the event every young pro needs to get started. 

 

You've been to a career fair - and it sucked, right? Hustle Summit is so much more. We're bringing together the coolest companies in the city - like BuzzFeed, Univision, Madison Square Garden, Blue Apron, and more - to give you the chance to meet them and show them what you've got. 

 

Throughout the day, we'll provide plenty of opportunities for you to learn more about our Hustle Summit employers and what they look for, as well as to get to know your fellow hustlers. 

Can I give Hustle Summit as a gift? I'm a parent, can I purchase a ticket for my kid?

 

Absolutely! Hustle Summit is the perfect gift for the student, recent grad, or young pro in your life. If you purchase Hustle Summit tickets in your name, you'll receive a form afterwards where you can update the information with the name and email of the person you're giving it to.

WTF do you mean by hustle?

 

We're glad you asked. The hustle is working hard, taking action, and not waiting for opportunities to fall into your lap. This is the hustle.

What's this FindSpark thing I keep hearing about?

 

FindSpark is a community by and for the most ambitious diverse young pros out there. We're the largest Meetup for interns and young pros in the country, producing 200+ programs for 25,000+ members...and we're just getting started. We're producing this awesome event, and we can't wait to meet you.

Who's it for?

 

This event is for the young and hungry. If you're an ambitious college student, international student, MBA candidate or young professional (i.e., you've got up to 3 years of real-world work experience), we want to see you there. 

Can I arrive late?

 

For sure. While we strongly recommend you take advantage of every second of this opportunity, we understand that you might have a job or internship that takes up some of your time. Come when you can, and make the most of your time at Hustle Summit. Our VIP tickets give you early entry at 4:00pm, and doors for GA tickets open at 5:30pm.

How big is this event? 

 

We make sure all our events are productive, but also casual and actually fun. Hustle Summit will have 500+ attendees, dozens of reps from hiring companies, and mentors available for pressure-free feedback. That's 500+ new connections and friends who can support and help you throughout your career. If that sounds overwhelming, take a deep breath - we promise a top-notch experience for every single one of you.

What should I bring?

 

This is your chance to show these companies what you've got - so come prepared. Bring your resume, portfolio, business cards, a device to show off your personal website - anything that will give these companies a better idea of what you bring to the table. 

Any tips for getting the money together to attend?

 

Your career is an investment - you need to put in $$ now to make $$ later. We do a lot to make sure this event is worth way more than the ticket price. But we understand the struggle. Because we want to help you get here, we have some ideas to help out:

 

  • Ask your boss or HR department if they can subsidize part of the ticket cost for your professional development.

  • Get a short-term, part-time or freelance job to earn some extra cash. Check out these part-time job ideas for inspiration.

  • Commit to putting aside a certain percentage of your paycheck until you've saved up enough for the event.

  • Pick a luxury item you like to buy yourself often - like lattes, Netflix, happy hours - and give it up for however long you need to save up the money.

  • Ask for Hustle Summit for your birthday.

 

You can also apply to be a Hustle Summit Fellow or Scholar by June 30th at 11:59pm EST.

I don't have any work experience, but I want to get some - is Hustle Summit for me?

 

We love meeting eager young pros who are looking to get a foot in the door. However, this event is geared towards those with at least a one internship under their belt, who are qualified for the crazy cool positions are employers are hiring for. We want leaders who demonstrate hustle in and out of the office, including freelancers and side hustlers. If you don't have a solid resume to hand out, this event isn't for you.
