    But from right now to the time of getting a job placement
    Let me guess....Art Institute?

    You will never be "placed" in any sort of good job from there (or anywhere) unless your skills are up to or above par. And even the case of being exceptional, a place such as the Art Institute places 1 student into temporary "crunch" contract work and is promptly let go once the studio has filled it's milestone. Then they can tell you at the beginning of enrollment that they have a "JOB PLACEMENT PROGRAM!".

    It is not something you should EVER expect. Professional, highly skilled artists have a hard time getting work at the moment. Expecting "job placement" is, unfortunately, wishful thinking.

    I know, because I went through it. A different discipline, but I still went through it. "Oh yeah, we'll place ya after ya graduate! And we'll tell you all the job hunting skills you need in a class during your final quarter!".

    Bullshit and bullshit. They just called me once a month after graduation to see how MY search was going. Then when I had a contact, they added it to their file. After 6 months, I never heard from them again.
