Careers in Animation is for people who want to know how to find employment in the local animation industry. Representatives from the industry will discuss their careers, background, the kinds of work they do, who gets hired, what training you need to get a job, portfolio tips, what will impress people who are in a position to hire you and other basics. This is your chance to ask and get your questions answered about careers in animation. NOTE: Please leave your portfolios at home, as this is not a portfolio review!
