The Final Steps

You are in enrolled in the school of your dreams. Everyone there shares the same passion for the arts as you do. You have classmates that want to work in the same industry, and some in the same position. The equipment you learn how to use is the top of the line equipment in your industry. Time swiftly passes by and you make new friends, you invest in equipment, you party, and most of all you live life to the fullest. Then reality hits.  You are reminded that graduation is in a month and you need to pick up your cap and gown for the ceremony. You finally realize that you will be graduating soon, and that you will be thrown out into the real world. Many students find themselves in this situation. They are left feeling nervous about the next chapter of their lives. Unlike most colleges, Full Sail University has a career development department. This department is designed to help our graduates build their resumes, demo reels, get leads in the industry, and guide them to a successful future. Finding a job after graduation is already a difficult task. With your career development Advisor, each student is given an extra set of eyes that is looking and seeking job leads that fit each student’s resume. We inform our students of job sites that they can check out. Some of these sites list jobs in  Los Angeles and some in New York. It is very important for each student to take full advantage of the resources they are given. Each student at Full Sail University is given an Advisor three months before graduation. If you take advantage of this resource, by the time your graduation date you will have a completed quality looking resume, a demo reel if needed, and an idea of what is going on in areas of your interest. Each student deserves the right to experience success. It’s your dream and your future. Go after it with all you got.
