Looking to grow as a professional but not sure where to start? Attending talks from visiting employers is a great way to learn what companies are looking for in an ideal candidate. It can even be a chance to meet with employers in person afterwards and share a conversation.
Always keep an open mind about employers - even if their company doesn't specialize in sequential art or illustration, every company needs designers and artists! Many sequential art and illustration alumni have found incredibly rewarding art careers working for companies they never would have considered previously. Companies of all kinds - clothing, sports gear, toy design, advertising, and more - come to SCAD looking for artists. Don't write a company off simply because it doesn't match your ideal; art jobs can be great stepping stones to your dream job!
