Description/Abstract

Students attempting to find work in creative industries are gaining many of the technical skills they need to work - but are often missing skills to get, keep, and flourish in their careers in these fields. Skills gaps covered in the workshop include:

  • 21st century skills (including soft skills)
  • Job and internship research and application
  • Networking
  • Portfolio creation and presentation
  • Alternative work opportunities including freelancing and entrepreneurship.

Explore a case study of how CreatorUp is teaming up with LACC to develop a workshop program entitled "Getting a Job in Creative Industries: You, Your Skills, Your Portfolio". Learn what items are covered in the workshop series - and how LACC plans to implement on this campus, and how you may be able to implement it on your campus.
