If you’re like many people, COVID-19 has caused you to rethink what you want to do with your career. Maybe you lost your job or realized you’re ready for a change from the one you have. Whatever your situation, the good news is that now you know you want a career that allows your creativity to flourish. You want to put your talent to use and get paid for it.

But the problem is you’re not entirely sure about your career options, and you don’t know how to get the training to start along this new path. To help you figure that out, here’s a list of top creative careers you can train for in under two years. We’ve also included information about the VCAD programs you can take to get there:

3D Modeling

Do you spend way too much time thinking about loveable enchanted snowmen or world-destroying supervillains? If so, you’re ready to become a 3D modeler and bring characters like these to life on screen.

In VCAD’s 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program, you’ll learn fundamentals including character design, rigging, lighting, and texture. This includes training on industry-standard software such as Maya and ZBrush.

Game Development
