Collaborative and tightly-knit community and workplace
Collective Performances Organizer (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 24, 2016
Working at Otis College of Art and Design is a very efficient way of making connections with professors and peers. The work is fast-paced and in high demand. Working as a teacher assistant or gallery host at the school I attend is convenient and productive for my learning experience. Volunteer positions improve my relationships with other artists and help to improve the community.
Making lasting connections

I really enjoy working for Otis College of Art and Design. In the last 15 years I have gained much from Otis. Otis is a family and a wonderful place to work.
I have learned how to work as team not only with my co-workers, but with upper management.
There really anything I can say "what was the hardest part of my job", because there wasn't any thing really hard except maybe letting people go do to work performance . We always worked a team and achieved great things by doing things as a team.
Always working together as a team
Not enough time in a day works to complete all the goals I have set for myself

"The universe is working in your favor." I heard this on my first day at OTIS to realize, yes, this is true and that we design our own lives in the making in one shape or another. Be open to the opportunities and resources here. There are many great and talented people. The time between application to hire is about 1-2 months.
