Academy Weekly: Behind the Scenes and Options to Look Forward To

Don’t forget to RSVP for tomorrow’s online workshop, Behind the Laces: An Introduction to Footwear Design on ZOOM, absolutely for FREE.

As we start chipping away at August, we take a look at online workshops as viable resources, and careers you can look forward to as you plan for an online-ready career.

FREE Online Workshops

In case you haven’t been in the loop, Academy of Art University has been hosting a series of online workshops absolutely FOR FREE. Attending online workshops in general is good not only to pass the time or build a new hobby or skill set in the midst of the pandemic, but it’s also a great way to get to know an industry more.

For all you know, you’re on your way to your dream career, and the door leading you to it is an online workshop. Don’t just take our word for it; here are six more reasons why you should attend online workshops.

Popular Sneaker Designs of All Time

Speaking of workshops, we’ve got another one happening tomorrow from the School of Industrial Design. Find out what really goes on behind the scenes (or as this event goes, “Behind the Laces” – RSVP HERE) during the creative process for sneaker design. This ought to give you a much better appreciation for footwear design in general, but especially these sneaker designs considered to be among the most popular of all time.

The Rise of the Work From Home Era

What these past several months have proven is that not all jobs and industries are created equal. When it comes to unusual circumstances such as the one we are living in today, there is such a thing as being “pandemic-ready.”

Rather unsurprisingly, jobs that can be facilitated and conducted online have largely been left unaffected by the sudden loss of physical contact and mobility. It’s highly likely that this is going to be a primary consideration for job-hunters in the many years to come, especially if it means securing their job employment. So here we give you a few choices for online careers you can pursue in this new work from home era.
