Creative Job Studio returns this New Year with an alternating programme. 

Every month we will focus on either general career advice and industry professionals, with the alternating focus on a specialist area such as Fashion, Tech, Theatre, Art and Music. January will be a general theme.

Join us at our January Meet the Creative Industries Drop-in to chat face to face with people working in the arts, gain first-hand experience of their own career development, learn about the different roles within arts organisations and seek advice for your own creative career. In this session, we also have HelloGrads joining us with their pop-up LinkedIn Photo Booth where you can get a professional self-portrait for free (so make sure you look your very best and in smart casual clothes).  As well as portrait shots, HelloGrads will giveaway their LinkedIn hackpack (guide to setting up and using LinkedIn).
