|Blue Zoo's Bader Badruddin|
Among the Blue Zoo staff looking for fresh talent was Bader Badruddin, one of their lead animators (pictured left).
Bader chatted to animators about the kind of work Blue Zoo is looking for, and to make things easier still the company have also put together a very helpful blog post titled "Top Ten Recruitment Stand Tips" for students and graduates hoping to impress the company at a recruitment stand.
Meeting recruiters is one of the key reasons to attend festivals such as the VFX Festival, the Annecy animation festival, or FMX in Stuttgart.
Making an impression
When you meet a recruiter you have a chance to make an impression, and become a real person rather than just another anonymous cv in someone's inbox.
Our industry is a people industry; it's much easier to find work if someone on the inside knows you and feels they are likely to be able to rely on you. Getting to know the recruiters is an important first step on the animation career ladder.
