Third year: Testing your career decisions

  • Begin to take upper-level elective courses and begin building your professional portfolio. Revise your résumé and cover letters to market your professional skills developed from your coursework.
  • Develop specific short-term and long-term career goals. This includes targeting the types of organizations and companies that you would like to work for, pursuing excellence in your upper-level coursework and actively seeking feedback from peers and SCAD faculty as you build your professional portfolio and demo reel.
  • Continue to build a network of professional contacts through student organizations, faculty referrals, personal friends and relatives, and contacts made through your internship experience. Contact the office for career and alumni success for tips on effective networking.
