demo reel was so strong that conference goers repeatedly assumed that it was either faculty or alumni work, and they were clearly impressed when we told them it was from students ranging from Sophomores to Seniors. There was someone standing in front of the screen every minute of every one of my 15 hours at the booth! Before the conference began, I visited the headquarters of both Apple and Pixar. Both companies are excited about the relationships they have with Ringling, and they look forward to continuing to work with us. More specifically, they look forward to increasing the contacts they have with Ringling students during their campus visits, or via online interactions. Both companies also expressed a desire to see work from underclassmen. When I asked for their rational, they informed me that they save the work submitted to them for internships and that they revisit previous submissions to assess studentsâ€™ progress as they apply again for internships, or full-time employment. Both companies verified that they save submissions as they share standout work with other departments within their company. This information was exciting for it reinforces the Center for Career Servicesâ€™ message to underclassmen that it is never too early to apply and begin building a network! Thank you!
