By connecting tomorrow’s creative leaders with design leaders and equipping them with the professional tools to bring their ideas to life, we can expose youth to rewarding career possibilities around their design interests.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
3D Training Institute (3DTi) is launching a monthly webinar series, featuring studio recruiters who will describe the exciting career opportunities for 3D artists. These webinars are a unique opportunity for students who want to work in movies, video games, or architecture to talk to the people who make hiring decisions.
Each webinar will feature a recruiter from a well-known studio. They will describe their jobs for 3D artists, salary ranges, and job requirements. The recruiters will share job opportunities and tips for getting hired. The webinar will also feature a successful artist who will describe his or her journey to success, and answer questions.
Webinar participants—high-school and college students and teachers—will be offered a free introductory training program from 3D Training Institute so that they can take the first steps towards their 3D career right away. Students and educators can also take advantage of free access to Autodesk 3D design software via the Autodesk Education Community – these are the same design tools used by design professionals and commercial studios worldwide. Computer hardware discounts will be offered, and at some of the webinars, there will be contests for beginners and advanced 3D users. Winners will have their reel/portfolio reviewed by a studio recruiter.
Gary Platt, a 3DTi Advisory Board Member says: “We here at 3DTi are very excited about featuring studio recruiters in our webinars. They will describe the fun, rewarding, and viable career paths for 3D professionals. 3DTi’s mission has always been to prepare students to take on client projects, work for studios, or create their own 3D business. We are giving students a chance to talk to the people at the top of their profession and to get valuable insider tips on what it takes to become successful. We want to inspire them to believe that they can achieve any goal that they set for themselves.”
Connecting students with studios is 3DTi’s latest step towards helping students achieve a rewarding 3D career. 3D Training Institute, an Autodesk Authorized Training Center, teaches 3ds Max®, Maya®, Revit®, Inventor®, and AutoCAD®. 3DTi wants to raise awareness about career opportunities in 3D, and help students prepare for and land that dream job.
“Young people often aren’t aware of vocational opportunities that align with their passions and skills. By connecting tomorrow’s creative leaders with design leaders and equipping them with the professional tools to bring their ideas to life, we can expose youth to rewarding career possibilities around their design interests,” said Peggy Snyder, Director, Autodesk Education.
The webinar series will launch in January of 2015. For more information on how to register, or to find out more about this webinar series, CLICK HERE.
