Get yourself to the "Find Your Future 2017" event in London on 9 August.
If you're interested in working in the creative industries, but not yet ready to commit to any particular area then Find Your Future could be the careers event for you.
Representatives from some of London's top animation and VFX houses will be there (notably Double Negative and Framestore) and - best of all - the event is completely free.
What's Find Your Future All About?
BECTU, the media & entertainment union, and Westminster Kingsway College are hosting this event at the King's Cross Centre to showcase the apprenticeship and trainee opportunities on offer from a host of employers across the media and entertainment sectors.
Who is it for?
The event is aimed at 16-24 year olds who are not (yet) pursuing higher education, and who are interested in finding out more about the opportunities on offer in the creative industries. Anyone wishing to pursue apprenticeship or trainee routes, also teachers and parents will also be very welcome.
Employers and speakers include repreentatives from Visual Effects powerhouses Double Negative, Framestore and the Mill.
The talk we're most excited to attend is at 11am, titled "Is An Apprenticeship Right For Me?" Amy Smith from Framestore & Garreth Gaydon from The Mill
will offer an overview of the VFX apprenticeship opportunities. What do
they look for in an apprentice? How does recruitment work? And what
should you expect from the scheme?
As always, we recommed that our students get to know the recruiters at the big London VFX houses and animation studios. Ask questions, introuduce yourself, and get some advice on how to break into the industry.
