You must have access to the internet, e-mail and phone calls during your working hours. You must be available to attend our events, as well as help set-up and tear-down.

TO APPLY

Please email Julie a brief cover letter introducing yourself, explaining why you want to work with Forth and confirming if you'd be able to start this November and will be in Chicago to fulfill the 12 months commitment (through the end of November 2018). Include your resume and a link to any online portfolios or attach a PDF portfolio if available.

WHO WE ARE

Forth is an organization focused on creating intentional events that celebrate community and connect people.

We do this in three ways: quarterly salons, public events and custom services. Our quarterly salons bring together Chicago's creative women entrepreneurs. We host four seasonal events each year with a curated guest list ranging from hands-on craftswomen to designers of all kinds, tech-savvy disruptors and hand illustrators, writers, producers, photographers, connectors, stylists, artists, and more. We style each event both visually and with food and drink, at a new venue every quarter. We also create a theme to inspire the salon's flow. Our goal is not networking, its authentic conversation and connection, creating space and time for bright ideas. Talk is honest, open, real, and often very, very funny.

Fortune Makers: Forth + Rent the Runway by Julie Schumacher

F2F2CCF3-D51A-484E-9C7D-08170DA332FC-1.JPG

Last night we had a blast partnering with Chicago's Rent the Runway location for an evening get together.

The theme was Ladies Who Start Fresh. Forth and goldplaited were on hand along with the stylists of Rent the Runway and a boatload of champagne.

Many Forth-ers are career re-inventors and re-invigorators. We know a thing or two about starting fresh. We thought it would be fun to share a few ideas for ways to get the started on a re-start.

So we made a cootie catcher. You may remember these from school days with the names of people you would date or a off-the-wall predictions of your future life.

We updated it with career refresh steps, and some favorite fashion options to start in honor of Rent the Runway.

If you missed the event (we sure missed you!), you can still make your own Forth Fortune Maker.

Next time you're sitting at your desk daydreaming about next steps, pick this lil' guy up and get inspired to start fresh!

Can't remember how to fold one? Here's a tutorial!
