Mock Interviews with Industry Today at Escape

"Interview"by the Animation Workshop
Today at Escape Studios we're running a series of mock interviews with some of our industry partners and mentors, who have kindly offered their time to give our undergraduate students an idea of what a job interview is actually like.

Learning how to survive an interview is an important part of preparing our students for a career in industry.

Demo Reel
Of course, the key to success in the animation, games and VFX industries is primarily about having a great demo reel, easy to find and well-presented.  Once a studio is interested in your demo reel, the next stage is the interview. 

Where and when
Mock interviews take place today, Monday 11th November 2019, from 5-7pm at 190 High Holborn WC1.

Work Fitness Week Centre
