In the spirit of the holidays, here's some good news: THU Career Camp will be back for a second edition on March 8-10, 2022!
Career Camp was born in 2020 to support you during the pandemic, helping you access the THU networking magic from your home. Meanwhile, it has grown into one of the biggest online events focused on recruiting and mentoring. It also became one of the most important projects for us: it's our human approach to online networking and a tool that allows us to help creators all around the world, especially the ones who don't have the resources to travel and access these kinds of opportunities.
The companies confirmed so far are Lucasfilm Animation, Nickelodeon Animation Studio, Industrial Light & Magic, Supercell, Axis, Frontier, Lightheart Entertainment, Platige Image, Skydance Animation, Polygon Pictures, La Tribu Animation, Outfit 7, DNEG Animation, Cloud Imperium Games, and Atomhawk. We're currently working to bring you the best companies, so we'll be adding more soon!
A big shoutout to the ones joining us in helping creators go further in their careers!
Tickets are free! Here's how you can get one.
Applications are open, everyone can apply to get a pass here.
If you have been to a THU Main Event or the previous edition of Career Camp, there's no need to apply! You are automatically entitled to two tickets: one for you and another for a plus one.
How do I pick my plus one?
We're giving you the mission of bringing someone new to the Career Camp. This means you can give someone the chance to get a career and inspiration boost! Awesome, right?
Share the love! Invite a friend or acquaintance that you think would enjoy this experience! Can't think of anyone? Then why not become a talent scout? Invite that creator you've been following on social media and whose work you've always admired! Or someone from a discord server or forum you're a part of.
The most important thing is that you feel that this person would enjoy being a part of a safe place where kindness and mutual help lead the way.
Let's talk about the activities.
This next edition will feature the following activities:
Recruitment Sessions: Interview slots where recruiters can get to know the attendees and see if they match their company's needs.
Mentorship and portfolio reviews: Mentors look through tribe members' portfolios, using your knowledge to give them insights that can enrich and improve their work (group and individual).
Skill and Career Development Sessions: Talks given by mentors and recruiters, with Q&A, to help creators develop their careers and learn specific skills to enrich the community's know-how.
Technical Tracks (new): Workshops and tutorials designed to help creators improve their skills using the industry's most powerful tools.
Tribe Talks (new): The Tribe will be able to submit ideas for talks and get the chance to give one during the Camp.
We hope you're excited to be a part of the second edition of Career Camp, and we can't wait to share more news with you soon.
