VFX Jobs at Facebook

VFX Jobs at Facebook

Finding that crucial first job can be one of the toughest parts of a career in animation. To get there, you need to keep an eye on various company websites, sign up for their Twitter feed (Aardman for example seems to recruit largely through Twitter these days), and keep you ear to the ground. One useful group is the VFX jobs Group at Facebook, a community of VFX artists to post jobs, information, and generally help one another out.

The VFX Jobs group is a place for serious animation and VFX artists to share information - Spammers and time-wastes need not apply. To find the group, follow this link.

To find out more about finding work in the animation industry, click here.  Perhaps our most useful blog post about finding work is this one here, which sets out twelve steps to finding work.

Most important of all, keep in touch with your friends and colleagues in the industry. The people working inside a company are always the first to hear about upcoming jobs.

Our Facebook Group at Animation Apprentice, which is a closed group (sorry - you have to study with us to join!) often serves this function - our graduates in current work at busy studios will let other students know when jobs are on the horizon.
