Full Sail’s Career Development department connects graduating students and alumni with proprietary web-based job platforms to help them land rewarding positions.
Earning your degree calls for a celebration, but job-hunting stress can cast a shadow over your party. Luckily, Full Sail has a robust Full Sail’s Career Development department is committed to supporting students and graduates throughout their professional journeys. In addition to connecting alumni with career advisors and regional alumni relations reps, Career Development provides grads with a number of web-based resources to assist them with their individual job searches.
“Career Development is excited to offer several proprietary job-related platforms that are available 24 hours a day and provided free to our graduates," says Doree Rice, Full Sail’s Director of Career Development. "These include CareerSync and GoinGlobal, which can be accessed using your student log-in credentials. ProductionHUB is another job search resource available to our grads for one year at no cost."
Toward the end of their time at Full Sail, students are connected with CareerSync, Full Sail’s free online grad services portal. Graduates can upload their resumes, search for jobs, and connect with career advisors. The jobs posted on CareerSync are from companies that are specifically looking to hire Full Sail grads, so applicants have a better shot than they would if they were applying to other online job postings. Grads can set up Job Alerts, which send them notifications about positions that align with their interests and qualifications.
CareerSync is also a great place for grads to sign up for online networking events, workshops, and alumni mixers.
Full Sail students and grads can also use their CareerSync accounts to create a free GoinGlobal premium account. GoinGlobal is a comprehensive job-hunting site; its Career Guides offer city-specific sets of advanced job search tools, plus data on cost of living, taxes, income trends, and more. Graduates can customize their homepages, use Saved Searches to react quickly when ideal job listings are posted, and access professional development tools like webinars and training tools.
ProductionHUB is an online portal that connects creative professionals with employers who are looking for qualified, reliable crew members for their productions. The platform places Full Sail grads in a global network of crew and vendors, helping them find opportunities in television, movies, live events, post-production, and more.
Full Sail grads and current students who are in their final 90 days before graduation can sign up for a free one-year basic profile, plus a 25% discount for any upgrades to ProductionHUB’s platform. The service’s 3,000+ annual leads and 86% hiring rate make it a sound opportunity for any Full Sail grad.
