Career blog about career well-being and the education pathways to meaningful careers. How could anyone possibly think that sleeping outside, getting frequently beaten and abused and suffering humiliation after humiliation is preferable to working and having a safe, comfortable place to sleep, protection from assault, and respect from your fellow man? If a person really thought that the horror of homelessness was better than working a job, wouldn’t that be pretty insane in itself? It’s not a choice. That strange, smelly homeless guy yelling nonsense at passersby is disabled by his mental illness.

Everyone should make a reel for the type of work they want. If you’re targeting feature film or television work then do your own shots that involve what you see in feature films and television. (i.e. reality based composites, animation, etc). If you want to work in motion graphics then a reel demoing motion graphics would be the best bet. Keep in mind that the company probably have a tall stack of other vfx demo reels. To make yourself compelling to them you have to have a compelling reel. It’s all about the quality and range.

This individual added me to her ‘circle of trust’ as she makes her escape to a better job situation. She is working on her resume, updating her LinkedIn profile, doing selective networking. It is all about taking constructive ACTION—she is working, updating, doing. She’s not expecting the organization to change; she’s not waiting for someone to save her career and she’s not just going to sit there and let something happen to her. Hint: None of those things work. Even if you wait to get laid off and get a severance, the emotional will impact your confidence to interview for a better job. The severance is never enough money.
I would simply like to say that I find it very odd that there seems to be such an array of MT programs available these days. Especially when we now have transcription software which allows the doctor to dictate directly to the computer while it makes out the report exactly as dictated. Also, transcription jobs are being outsourced overseas and anywhere cheap labor is available. My friend had this happen to her MT job.
