Career Counseling
Career Services offers students assistance in developing the skills necessary for pursuing a career as a working artist. Career counseling is available by appointment to students in general areas such as résumé and cover letter preparation, grants and proposals, networking, and interview and negotiation techniques. Because of the specialized nature of study at NCSA, students are also encouraged to seek specific career guidance from the faculty of their arts school.

Career Resource Center
Career Services has a library of resources available for research on a variety of career topics. Materials available include career opportunities in the arts, survival skills for the working artist, résumé tips and examples, national directories of arts organizations and job search techniques.
