VCAD Career Services

If you’ve ever tried changing careers, you’re familiar with the “experience paradox”: without experience, you can’t get hired; but if you can’t get hired, you’ll never get experience.

At VCAD, we’re committed to helping you achieve professional success, and that includes giving you the tools, training and support to beat the experience paradox. First of all, your VCAD assignments will prepare you for the actual projects you’ll face in your new career, giving you the experience employers demand and a professional portfolio that shows you have the skills they’re looking for.

As a VCAD student, you also have at your disposal Career Services professionals dedicated to helping you land that crucial first job that will kick-start your new career. They’ll help you identify employment opportunities, connect you with the most up-to-date job postings and help you fine-tune your portfolio, resume and interview skills.

But that’s not all. In addition to support from campus staff, VCAD graduates and alumni have free access to Optimal Resume, an online resume building tool to help make the job search even easier. Optimal Resume allows users to easily create, customize and distribute resumes, as well as build interactive personal resume websites that can be shared with prospective employers.

Our Career Services department is a key reason why, as of October 2011, more than 93 percent of VCAD grads were working in their field of choice. With a VCAD education and the full support of our Career Services professionals, you’ll be well on your way to landing the design career that will change your life.
