Job Search Skills
As you approach graduation—and the job market—you’ll want to meet one-on-one with a Career Services advisor to talk about your goals and ways you can sharpen your job-search strategy, interview techniques, and resume. Then you’ll have a chance to attend workshops and presentations on topics that may include:
- Resume writing and review
- Cover letter writing
- Social Media 101
- Alumni panels
- Industry professional speakers
Our Career Services Department organizes professional-focused events designed to put you face-to-face with potential employers from the industry you plan to enter. The highlight is a quarterly Portfolio Show, where those employers will see examples of your best work. It’s a way for them to evaluate your talents—and a way for you to make a big impression.
Our grads are out there pursuing careers in the design, media arts, fashion, and culinary industries. Meeting tough challenges, re-shaping the creative world, and most of all, doing what they love.
