Lunch and Learn
The Office of Career Services offers numerous seminars and workshops throughout the academic year through the Lunch and Learn program series. Past workshop and seminar topics have ranged from producing and marketing a CD to starting an independent theater company. Monthly workshops on practical topics have included résumé writing, drafting a cover letter, organizing a press kit, grant writing and funding resources, building a Web site, and video editing. Guest speakers include some of the industry’s top leaders and innovators. Seminars are advertised in The Juilliard Journal, on the School’s Intranet, in the Residence Life Office, and in the Career Services Office.
Public Speaking from the Stage and Beyond
This service is open to all Juilliard students, faculty, staff, and alumni who wish to improve their public speaking skills. The ability to speak effectively to an audience has become the norm rather than the exception for the performing artist. Our approach is designed to help speakers conquer anxieties, and become confident, persuasive, and effective. Please visit the office to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
Hire Juilliard Performers
The Juilliard School’s Professional Artist Services connects Juilliard students with clients looking to hire performers for concert series and commercial engagements such as weddings, anniversaries, corporate parties, and other special events. Each day, the service receives dozens of requests for Juilliard performers. The income generated from these events helps students pay for professional photos, record demo CDs, and create professional press kits. The Juilliard School recognizes that the students who perform at these events are representing the institution. In order to be placed on the roster, students must fulfill certain requirements and be in good academic standing. For a list of these requirements and a complete application, please visit the Career Services Office in Room 488.
