Career Services, housed within the newly conceived Center for Life and Work, provides individual career counseling, services, programs, and workshops for both undergraduate and graduate students to supplement existing métier-specific professional practice opportunities. We help students and alumni artists understand how to sustain their art practice for the long term—which often means multiple tracks of employment and unconventional thinking about managing art, life, and work. We cultivate relationships with recruiters and practicing professionals as well as develop internship, employment and recruitment partnerships on and off campus.
Career Services links students and alumni to jobs, internships, arts organizations, grants, residencies, study abroad and other opportunities. During the school year, we invite companies for on-campus presentations and recruiting. We also host workshops that focus on résumé and cover letter writing, legal issues in art, teaching, grant writing, budgeting and credit, tax preparation and time management.
Only CalArts students and alumni are able to view postings listed on the CalArts Job Bank. You can register as a student or alumni here to begin viewing jobs and internships.
