After a professional network and job search tool designed specifically for people in the creative industries? You need The Dots.
Ideal for anyone whose career aspirations don’t fall into the traditional ideas of what a “professional” looks like, think of The Dots as like LinkedIn but with far more focus on the art, design, fashion and mutimedia sectors. Burberry and M&C Saatchi, for example, have each used The Dots to find the right people for their projects.
You’ll be just as likely to find open job roles listed at the Serpentine Galleries, National Theatre or London Symphony Orchestra as you will discover positions at ASOS, COS, Warner Bros. and Airbnb.
But this is not just about job hunting, it’s about making connnections and collaborating on projects. Why not shout out for someone to critique your work, or ask if anyone is interested in sharing a desk space with you?
You can upload your portfolio and projects you have worked on. Add text and images or embed video from sites such as Vimeo and YouTube. Standout projects will be showcased on the home tab. And with ARKit support you can even display your augmented reality projects.
Credit the people who worked with you on projects, and they will do the same for you, so you’ll soon build a network of talented associates with whom you can collaborate on future projects.
And there’s more. In the events tab, you’ll find workshops, lectures and talks to sign up to. With The Dots your next career breakthrough could be waiting for you.
