We hope to be running Creative Careers Night again in 2021. Check back here for up-to-date information, but in the meantime browse last year’s Creative Careers Night booklet to see what the night entailed!
Come along to the inaugural Creative Careers Night to hear from industry professionals working in creative arts, TV, film and gaming, writing, creative technology, advertising, craft and design, and everything else in between. Creative Careers Night is designed to provide you with an idea of the breadth of the roles available within the Creative Industries and how to take your first steps towards a role in this sector.
The event will give you an insight into the many and varied career paths that are available, ideas for how to market transferable skills, tips on freelancing and building your own professional portfolio and the opportunity to practice your networking skills.
As well as plenty of time to talk to industry professionals, recruiters and alumni in a beautiful, relaxed setting, Creative Careers Night will also feature some short performance pieces, a mini-showcase of studentâ€™s creative work and the opportunity to explore the Ashmoleanâ€™s fascinating collections.
This event will be helpful for anyone considering a career in the civil service, whether you are targeting graduate entry to the Fast Stream (FS), a direct entry role or considering an application to one of the Internship Diversity Programmes. These are some of the most prestigious and attractive development schemes available, butÂ we expect the application window to close very early in the new academic year (perhaps as early as the 2nd week of Michaelmas term) so it makes sense to start thinking now about why you want to apply and how to use yourÂ summer to prepare.
