What will I need to apply as a 3d modeller and animator?

Will I need anything beside knowledge of 3d modelling and animation software if I want to apply as a 3d modeller and animator? I will be graduating from my IT course this year.

I know how to use 3ds Max, Blender and Photoshop well.

If you can be chosey, then by all means you can use a specific format for your resume. As far as I am aware, IT jobs pay well, and can be in demand, assuming you get into a field of your choice. What worked for me in the past is a “scatter gun” approach where I apply to maybe a dozen jobs, then get a few interviews, and then get a job. Well I’s on job number 16 so far…and yet so far…none in IT or animation…although I has come close to some movie big names.

I think that the most-important goal should simply be … “to get inside.” :yes:

My first job, uhh, a long long time ago now, consisted of tearing pages off of a line-printer and shoving it through the appropriate slot. (All computing at that time was time-share; the PC hadn’t been invented yet.) I didn’t care. I was on the other side of that wall, and I systematically parleyed that into a job that I kept all through school and for three years thereafter.

If you “know how to use X, Y, and Z well,” and are willing to learn, and are willing to start at the bottom, then seek out those opportunities. Once inside any door, make it clear that you want to learn. Then, take every assignment that you are given – no matter how menial it may seem to be – and give it your utmost. Ask sensible questions, but listen more than you talk. And you’ll be on your way. :slight_smile:

----------Whether you like Bill Gates or not…this is pretty
cool. Here’s some advice Bill Gates recently dished out
at a high school speech about 11 things they did not
learn in school. He talks about how feel-good,
politically correct teaching has created a full
generation of kids with no concept of reality and how
this concept sets them up for failure in the real

         RULE 1
         Life  is not fair - get used to it.

         RULE 2
         The  world won't care about your        self-esteem. The world
         will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE        you  feel
         good about yourself.

         RULE 3
         You  will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a        year right out
         of high school. You won't be a vice president        with
         car phone, until you earn  both.

         RULE 4
         If  you think your teacher is tough, wait        till you get a
         boss. He doesn't have tenure.

         RULE 5
         Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.        Your
         grandparents had a different word for burger        flipping
         called it Opportunity.

         RULE 6
         If  you mess up,it's not your parents'        fault, so don't
         whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

         RULE 7
         Before you were born, your parents weren't as        boring as
         they are now. They got that way from paying         your bills,
         cleaning your clothes and  listening to        you talk about
         how cool  you are. So before you save the        rain forest
         from the parasites of your parent's generation,        try
         delousing the closet in your own room.

         RULE 8
         Your  school may have done away with        winners and losers,
         but life has not. In some schools they have         abolished
         failing grades and they'll  give you as        many times as
         you want to  get the right answer. This        doesn't bear the
         slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

         RULE 9
         Life  is not divided into semesters. You        don't get
         summers off and very few employers are        interested in
         helping you find yourself. Do that on your own         time.

         RULE 10
         Television is NOT real life. In real life        people
         actually have to leave the coffee shop and go        to  jobs.

         RULE 11
         Be  nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end        up working for
