Careers in The Arts

Graduates of KCAI are working in a variety of industries and doing big things. We love hearing from alumni about how they are putting their artistic skills into practice. Many are already making a name for themselves in their various artistic disciplines.

Career Advising

Let us help you meet your goals.

There is no set formula in seeking employment or navigating ones’ career goals. Every person’s interests, skills, and criteria are different. So the assistance we provide is refined, far-sighted, and most importantly, designed around you.

The PPC will help students develop as individuals and professionals through career advising, planning, networking, interview preparation, and more. Whatever lies ahead, one thing is certain, we are here to assist you in establishing and sustaining your creative professional goals.

Our students and graduates are uniquely prepared for the growing need for creative thinkers. They are powered by curiosity, constantly asking “why?” or “why not?” We train students to be creators, doers, and thinkers; self-starters and diligent workers so that they’re prepared to take on new challenges in a variety of industries.
