YARDCON is a conference tailored for Black students and recent graduates from HBCUs and PWIs seeking to secure jobs, internships, and build impressive portfolios. Powered by the collaboration between Watch the Yard and Advertising Week, YARDCON 2023 brings together students, alumni, and professionals for an interactive event and content experience that will help you land your dream internship or job at some of the world’s most sought-after companies.
Established as a response to the pandemic in 2020, YARDCON quickly became a vital resource for Black students nationwide, connecting them with internships and career opportunities with top companies across the United States. After two successful years of virtual events and engaging thousands of students, we are thrilled to announce our expansion to an IRL conference hosted at Clark Atlanta University.
