About Career Services
The Career Services Office is committed to supporting the education and professional training of artists in the visual and performing arts, design, media and writing. We offer comprehensive advising to students and alumni that assists them in building career development skills and tools, and provide access to professional opportunities and job market information. We are dedicated to supporting the multi-career life of the artist by offering personalized assistance that reflects the goals of each individual while also addressing the unique realities of establishing and maintaining a career in the creative economy.
"Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" - Chinese Proverb
The Career Services Office is not a placement agency - we cannot guarantee anyone a job (i.e., “give them a fish”). Our role is to provide resources and information that will make the job search much easier (i.e., “teach them to fish”). Career development is a life-long process. Throughout their lifetimes, graduates of The University of the Arts will continuously pursue professional success and fulfillment. We aim to be partners with students and alumni in order to empower them as they pursue their career goals.
