Career and Professional Development invites employers from around the world to post internships; full-time, part-time and freelance positions; residencies; fellowships and more.

DOT Connect (our current career portal) will be online through February 28, 2017.

The office of Career and Professional Development is excited to announce that to better serve our community, we are launching a new, more robust career opportunity platform, ArtCenter Connect.

*There will be a short pause in service from March 1, 2017 to March 7, 2017 while we change vendors.

For alumni users

Applications through DOT Connect itself (using the “Apply Now” button) will close at 9pm on Sunday, February 26, 2017. For positions requesting applications via email or through an external website, we recommend copying or making a screen shot of those job listings. Active positions with deadlines after March 7, 2017 will be migrated to the new platform.

For employer users

All current posted positions will be migrated onto the new career platform.

If you have questions or concerns in the meantime, please email or call our office: careers@artcenter.edu or 626-396-2320.

To gain exposure and develop an archive of professional-quality work, ArtCenter encourages students and alumni to create a digital portfolio on Adobe’s creative network, Bēhance, which is used by companies and creative enthusiasts around the globe to track and engage top talent. When students and alumni create a Bēhance profile they join thousands of other professional individuals and creative entities, including AIGA, Adweek and the National Design Awards. Once created, students and alumni can post their digital portfolio to DOT Connect and populate their LinkedIn profiles through the unique Bēhance LinkedIn partnership.

ArtCenter Network on Behance


LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network, providing access to people, jobs, news, updates and insights that can help you be more productive and successful. LinkedIn is also the only business-oriented networking site to partner with Bēhance, allowing creative individuals an opportunity to showcase their portfolio to potential employers.
