Access career resources in person or online
At all stages of the career search and process, there are questions. Maybe you want to see sample resumes that have blown recruiters away or you need to sit down and practice for your interview with a live person. Whatever you need, we provide it. You can stop by our office to speak with someone in person or you can browse through our online cache of helpful tips, tools, and tutorials. You’re never more than a few steps or a few clicks away from the advice you need.
Search jobs on College Central
Ringling College uses College Central, the nation's largest network for college job seekers, with registered employers posting opportunities for Ringling College students/alumni just like you! So you can see what recruiters and companies are looking for right now.
Join Ringling Portfolios on Behance
Ringling College students and alumni are welcome to join this exclusive network to share portfolio work with other members of the Ringling community, as well by potential clients, employers, recruiters, and creative enthusiasts. Get unparalleled exposure for your work, exchange ideas and critiques with fellow artists and designers, follow the portfolios of top creatives, and build a following of your own.

Past topics have included “The Recruiters are Coming” and “Working Abroad.” You just bring your lunch, and we’ll provide the rest.
Request one-on-one career counseling
This just so happens to be our specialty. Our experienced staff members are always available to help you on your path to success. That may be an early step, such as navigating the job search and resume prep, or big decisions later down the road, like evaluating job offers and graduate schools. Let’s make a date to discuss your future.
Ringling College’s Center for Career Services helps students reach their dreams
By Spencer Fleury | Photography Matthew Holler ’11
Charles Kovacs is focused. The second you meet him, that’s clear. The second thing you notice? His focus is directed on the needs of Ringling College’s students. This makes sense since he’s the director of Ringling College’s Career Services.
“Our office is all about serving the student,” he says. “It’s our job to learn what their skills, goals and dreams are—and then help them express that to appropriate companies. It’s also our job to serve as catalysts for students to realize the full potential of their art and design education.” Kovacs and his five-person team are in the career preparation business. They help students learn the tools of job searching and professionalism while bringing world-class recruiters and speakers to the Ringling campus. To make the process work, they reach out to students early. Only a week or two after students receive their initial acceptance letters, the Career Services office mails them a welcome letter, informing them they can get started on their career plans right away.
