The Best Jobs You’ve Never Heard of (Student Recommended Session)

Finding your dream job after graduation can sometimes be a nightmare but maybe that’s because you’re looking in the wrong place. You may think that your course has prepared you for one single career path, when in fact your skills could be transferable to a wide range of options you may not have known were options at all.

Many people who work in Production, Animation, Games, Immersive Tech, Software or Visual Effects didn’t start out that way but found that their dream job was only a step to the side. This session is all about thinking outside of your comfort zone and maybe discovering that the best job for you is a job you didn’t even know you wanted.

Learn from a panel of industry professionals sharing their stories and advice:

  • How many of the skills you have might work equally as well (if not better!) in a different discipline
  • How the right attitude toward your own abilities opens doors
  • How to make your own luck

Location: Theatre One
Time: Day 1 Wednesday 10.00 – 11.00
