career services primary

Otis College is at the heart of L.A.’s professional creative community. You will study and gain professional experience in one of the world centers of art and design production. The starving artist? It’s a myth, and our alumni prove it. Visit our Career Outcomes page for more information about Otis’ most recent graduating class.

Career Services are available to Otis students and alumni for life, as well as Extension certificate students in the last 6 months of their program and after graduation. We serve to educate and empower artists and designers to create and achieve the professional life they envision. We provide support and resources from the first day of enrollment in a BFA or MFA program through all stages of career exploration, personal and professional growth, employment, and creative professional practices. Our pages for Career Counseling, Getting a Job or Internship, Job Search Resources, and On the Job Tips will be helpful as you identify and navigate next steps for your individual goals.

We work with local, national, and global employers and organizations to cultivate art and design opportunities for students and alumni. Organizations that recruit from Otis are an important part of bridging academic classroom learning with workplace experience through internships and professional opportunities. Our pages for Hiring Otis Talent and Internship & Recruitment Day will provide ideas for making the most of your connection with the Otis community.

Handshake is the career platform used by students, alumni, and employers to post and discover internships, jobs on and off campus, career events, and schedule career counseling. Depending on your affiliation with Otis there are different ways to login:
