    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

Each artist raises questions in his work about the self in relation to others, collective norms, and the built environment.

101 Employers Turnout to Recruit from Otis College

2017 Intern Recruitment Day Showed Strength in L.A.'s Creative Economy

Guess, Hasbro, Metro Los Angeles, Stahl + Band, Venice Arts and Framestore are just a few of the 101 employers featured at this year's Intern Recruitment Day at Otis College of Art and Design. On March 30th, seniors, juniors, and sophomores from eligible programs presented their portfolios and met with recruiters, completing over 1,000 interviews in just three hours. 

A poll of the 2017 graduating seniors showed that over 90% of students with internships said that their internship allowed them to expand what the learned in the classroom and 88% of seniors indicate their internship allowed them to cultivate relationships with professionals in their field. Approximately 65% of Otis College students have had an internship by the time they graduate, and that number is expected to increase.

In addition to the annual Intern Recruitment Day, Career Services facilitates employer visits throughout the academic year with companies such as Dreamworks, Under Armour, NBC Universal, and Jam City. Students and alumni can also access internship, freelance, part-time, and full-time employment opportunities anytime through a vast online job board featuring over 2,600 employers. For more information on Career Services, click here. 

Greater access to internships and collaboration with community partners is only one element in the recently launched Your Creative Future initiative, which solidifies the College's commitment to offer empowering career preparation. Additional elements include expanding offering new and expanded business courses, a curricular pathway to entrepreneurship, and an even more individualized education.
