Creative Opportunities Newsletter
October 3, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources
From the Advisor
When I meet with a new student, they’re usually not too familiar with job alerts.
I love them.
In industries where timelines are so variable, a job alert:
1) Highlights jobs and internships. (This is the obvious one.) While I always set job alerts on job search engines, my preference is to start with the employer website – if they have a job alert function. That’s the first place an employer will post.
2) Provides a rough recruitment timeline for that employer. This is Disney; we’re close to the end of September, and they are still looking for spring interns. That means I can work on networking and not worry I’m missing any summer application timelines. However, my job alert for United Talent Agency – through LinkedIn – tells me that they are already thinking about the summer internship cycle. While it looks like a rolling deadline, I want to be more strategic about my application – put it in sooner than later – and ramp up my informational interview requests.
So. Set those job alerts. You will feel marginally less lost about those crazy timelines!
And, before I let you go, I want to highlight that PARAMOUNT will be coming to campus next week, people. Paramount. Let’s give them a big Hoya Saxa welcome and register for their info session. They are looking for ALL job functions: creative, marketing, finance, tech. So come on out!
I will also be hosting two wonderful alumni from Phillips Auction House and Horizon Media. And our upcoming Employer in Virtual Residence is The Phillips Collection. (All registration details are below.). If you are interested in how to better prepare yourselves for careers in these areas, these events are for you.
Take care all. Until next time!
