Job Mixer

On July 9, 2018, The Art Institute of Portland will host a free Job Mixer event, organized by Oregon Media Production Association (OMPA) and VFX/PDX. The goal of the event is to connect stop-motion, CG, and VFX animators with hiring managers at media production companies and potentially interview on the spot. Anyone interested in meeting skilled workers in this field is also welcome to attend.

Portland-based animation studio LAIKA is the catalyst for the Job Mixer, but the event is open to all – from student to supervisor. After the public event, taking place between 5:00–7:00 p.m., individual companies can opt to schedule private interviews with candidates that they would like to explore further.  These interviews will happen in offices down the hall from the main event between 7:00–9:00 p.m. later that night.

Participating companies include:
