Interested in finding a job in Communications, Music, Entertainment or the Arts?? Not sure where to start, or need some help getting (and staying) motivated?

Job Search Bootcamp for Creative Industries
Amber’s Senior Bootcamp for Creative Industries

Fridays 2-3pm, February 7th through the March 7th

Limited spaces still available, starts next week!

This five-week mini-course will help motivate you in your job search, lower stress by offering concrete strategies to help you reach your goals, and give you scheduled time each week to work on your future!

Topics to be covered include: 
  •  Figuring out what you want to do after graduation 
  • Taking control of your job search 
  • Creating resumes and cover letters that will catch employers attention, and how these documents are different in creative fields 
  • Discussing “other” types of application documents, including portfolios, writing samples, video resumes, clips, blogs and more 
  • Finding "hidden resources" to make you successful 
  • Networking and how to make it work FOR you 
  • Interviewing Basics

The Career and Internship Center's Senior boot camps are a great way to get and stay motivated, give yourself time and ability to focus, and bounce ideas off your peers!

Reviews from last spring's Senior Boot Camp for Creative Industries
"I thought Senior Boot Camp was essential to keeping myself calm, positive, and productive about my job search. I also learned a good deal about what it means to seek out and pursue job opportunities right now."

"it was SO NICE to have this specific boot camp because people looking for work in these types of industries need very different coaching and I felt really supported and felt that the sessions were very personalized and tailored to our specific needs"

"Bootcamp was so helpful, and I don't know how focused I would have been with my job search without it."

So helpful to have it focused around a theme. I think this will help others realize that the Career Center IS for the arts as well.”

Interested? Email Amber Graham with a copy of your resume if you have one, a short description of your interests by next Thursday at noon. There are limited spaces in this section, and preference will be given to students who can make at least four of the sessions.

Amber Graham is an Associate Director in the Career and Internship Center, and Team Lead for the Arts, Music, Communications and Entertainment team, as well as liaison to Art & Art History, Music, English, Film and Media Studies, Digital Media Studies and liberal arts majors.
