The Creative Circus places a great deal of emphasis on graduates getting paid to do what they learned to do in school. Heck, it’s our whole MISSION. To that end, The Circus offers assistance to graduates seeking employment opportunities. While no reputable school would ever guarantee employment, The Creative Circus graduates have had great success in their industries.
In addition to working with recent graduates, our Career Services department plans Portfolio Reviews, schedules our Speaker Forums, forges and maintains important industry contacts, and helps to keep our illustrious alumni connected. These are just some of the reasons our reputation in creative industries is unparalleled.
The Creative Circus offers assistance to graduates seeking employment opportunities. The school does not promise employment and can not be held responsible if a student fails to find employment. Students may seek counsel of thisdepartment as long as they are enrolled in good standing and/or have completed all requirements of their educationalprogram. Some of the services provided by the Career Services Department include, but are not limited to:
• Personal Placement Counseling
• Contact Lists of Employers throughout the U.S.
• Follow-Up Surveys
• Graduate Industry Portfolio Reviews
• Mentor Assignments in 6th Quarter
Students are encouraged to maintain contact with the Career Services Director and to notify the office of any change inaddress or status. Once employment is secured, the graduate must provide statistical data on the job and salary range to the Career Services Director. Maintaining a close communication with the Career Services Department regarding employment updates is essential to the continuing success of the Circus placement efforts.
Students with outstanding balances, who withdraw prior to completion, or fail to participate as required in placementactivities, waive all future rights to career services assistance.
The Grad Handbook, received by all graduate quarter students, contains all of the requirements for graduation as well as a list of items to be generated for a job search. Advance copies of this handbook can be obtained from the Department Heads or the Career Services Director. Graduate resumes are kept on file in the placement office for reference. Meeting with the Career Services Director, prior to graduation for a graduate exit interview, is required.
Students must be active, pro-active and responsive when the school’s Career Services Office requests job search materials. Placement assistance is only available to Circus graduates. “Completers” will not be able to utilize the assistance of the Career Services Department.
