We offer 30-minute appointments and 5-minute day-of Express Chats sessions to discuss a variety of career-related subjects including cover letter/resume reviews, job search skills, and individualized career strategies.
We invite you to partner with us as we work alongside faculty to complement what your student is learning in the classroom.
As students move through their time at Tisch, they will often turn to their parents and guardians for advice and guidance. The Tisch Office of Career Development offers strategies for pursuing and sustaining a lifelong career in the arts that can be challenging, competitive, and most of all, rewarding. Students should be encouraged to begin thinking about their career development early on. Encourage your student to take charge of his or her own career path by connecting with us.
We offer a wide variety of events throughout the school year, such as internship fairs, professional skills workshops, and industry-specific info sessions.
Our exclusive online career database houses internship/job listings and event listings, as well as other career-related resources.
Students and recent graduates can connect with industry members through the NYU Violet Network and the Tisch LA Mentor Program.
We offer free access to industry trade publications and databases such as Studio Systems, Backstage, Billboard, and the Foundation Directory. We also offer an online Career Document Library with guides covering everything from creative resume basics to listings for industry associations.
