Here’s what we’ve been up to this summer…

Fine Arts Career Services

The UT Fine Arts Career Services has had a busy summer and is excited to announce two big changes! The first of these is our new Fine Arts Works system. Through this system students and alumni can access pre-approved job and internship postings, search upcoming events, and much more. This database exclusively serves College of Fine Arts students and alumni.

*ALL current College of Fine Arts students can register for an account by using your EID for both your username and password to initiate login and registration. If you are alumni please contact FACS at 512.232.7333 or at facs@austin.utexas.edu to register for a new account.

Our second big change is one that directly affects all Fine Arts students. We are now the first college at UT-Austin to offer Integrated Advising! This means that beginning in the Fall Semester 2014, all students will meet with a career advisor two times during their academic career: at the beginning of their sophomore year and the second semester of their junior year. FACS will offer many exciting, new workshops and programs (including the New York Seminar) to help students complete this required advising. Please check our calendar to view opportunities and register.

*Note: You will be unable to lift your bar with an individual advising appointment the last week of the semester.

Fine Arts Career Services

Fine Arts Career Services (FACS) provides an array of services to help students and alumni realize the full potential of their education and experiences. Beginning in the Fall Semester 2014, all students will meet with a career advisor three times during their academic career: at the beginning of their sophomore year, the second semester of their junior year and the last semester of their senior year. In addition, students can speak with an advisor anytime for detailed feedback regarding their resumes, portfolios and application materials. Students also have access to available jobs and internships through resources such as Fine Arts Works. This database exclusively serves College of Fine Arts students and alumni as they explore professional opportunities and register for FACS' programming, including workshops, giving students greater insight into the dynamics of their field. This insight can be applied in the department's professional development course, FA 340, which helps students integrate their academic experiences with the practical experience of an internship.

As students consider their career options, FACS also conducts mock interviews for those preparing for job or graduate school interviews. These initiatives, in addition to FACS' annual NY Seminar exploring careers in arts administration for the visual and performing arts, enable students to create their own opportunities and pursue their goals.
