The Career Development Department was established to ensure that graduating Audio Engineering or Film School students are fully prepared to begin their job search upon graduation*. The department also works to create awareness among employers so they look to F.I.R.S.T. Institute graduates as a major source of staffing and internship opportunities. Read on for more details about what our Career department can do for you!
F.I.R.S.T. Institute students are able to set an appointment with the Career Development Department to review and provide recommendations on cover letters, resumes, reel packaging, business cards, and professionalism as a whole, whether they are in the Audio Engineering department or are Film School students.
JOB READINESS DEVELOPMENT
The content provided in the Career Development Handbook and program course is tailored to meet the ever-changing needs of the digital media industry.
INTERVIEWING AND NETWORKING
Experience from an audio or film internship and attendance at networking events provides students with the necessary experience to graduate with confidence and industry contacts. Instructors also conduct mock interviews to prepare students for seeking jobs upon graduation.
INTERNSHIP AND EMPLOYER CONTACT
Internship and employment opportunities are posted by the Career Development Department year round via campus bulletin boards as well as Twitter and Facebook. Students may choose to take full advantage of these or can take it upon themselves to find opportunities.
After graduation, the Career Development Department will continue to be in touch with graduates to see how their job search advances and in which areas they may need additional assistance. Students are required to fill out employment verification paperwork during their first few months following graduation to satisfy accreditation regulations.
*F.I.R.S.T. does not guarantee employment.
