We bring recruiters from the top creative companies around the world to deliver presentations and interview students. Attend career events, ask questions, and get the information you need to make thoughtful choices about your future. 

Perhaps you're curious but not quite ready to make an appointment. Maybe you want to take a look at part-time or freelance jobs that are currently posted in your field? Ringling College uses College Central, the nation's largest network for college job seekers, with over 6,500 registered employers posting opportunities for students just like you! So you can see what recruiters and companies are looking for right now.

Access career resources in person or online

At all stages of the career search and process, there are questions. Maybe you want to see sample resumes that have blown recruiters away or you need to sit down and practice for your interview with a live person. Whatever you need, we provide it. You can stop by our office to speak with someone in person or you can browse through our online cache of helpful tips, tools, and tutorials. You’re never more than a few steps or a few clicks away from the advice you need.

 

Search jobs on College Central

Ringling College uses College Central, the nation's largest network for college job seekers, with registered employers posting opportunities for Ringling College students/alumni just like you! So you can see what recruiters and companies are looking for right now.

 

Join Ringling Portfolios on Behance

Ringling College students and alumni are welcome to join this exclusive network to share portfolio work with other members of the Ringling community, as well by potential clients, employers, recruiters, and creative enthusiasts. Get unparalleled exposure for your work, exchange ideas and critiques with fellow artists and designers, follow the portfolios of top creatives, and build a following of your own. 

Watch recruiter presentations

Get a sneak peek into what it’s like to work at Disney, Hasbro, Sony, Dreamworks, Hallmark, and over 70 other top creative companies through our ongoing series of on-campus recruiter presentations (spoiler alert: it’s pretty cool) . Watch your email weekly to find out who, what, when and where. Missed a presentation? Don’t sweat it. You can view it online through ART Network—All Ringling TV!

 

Attend “Food for Thought” workshops

Every Friday in the fall we hold presentations during the lunch hour designed to help you in your job search, enhance your professional skill set, and build a plan for your future. Past topics have included “The Recruiters are Coming” and “Working Abroad.” You just bring your lunch, and we’ll provide the rest. 

 

Request one-on-one career counseling

This just so happens to be our specialty. Our experienced staff members are always available to help you on your path to success. That may be an early step, such as navigating the job search and resume prep, or big decisions later down the road, like evaluating job offers and graduate schools. Let’s make a date to discuss your future.

 

 

Employers love Ringling College

 

Our relationship with the school consistently yields great talent for Hallmark's internships and full-time hires. Ringling is one of our very few go-to schools for college recruiting. 

Amy Kligman

Creative Strategist, Hallmark

Ringling's quality of work and the conceptual development behind it is at a very professional level. The genuine passion for creativity here is at a higher level than any other school that we recruit from.

Ken Maruyama

Executive Director, Sony Picture Imageworks
