Some Advices?

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone. My name is Robert and I just moved to London a week ago. 

I recently published a post in which I expose my experience as a 3D artist (mid 3ds max and vray/ junior houdini and maya), but in this post I would like to ask you for tips to find work in this city, if someone could help me to get it. I am still in quarantine because I came from Spain, but next Monday I will try to go to all the studies in person despite the lockdown to find a job.

If someone could give me some hint or advice on how to act when you travel to a foreign country with not much experience in the area of VFX I would be eternally grateful. My intention is to stay here and start a new life dedicated to FX, whatever the difficulty.

Thanks for reading up to this point.

Best regards, Rober.

I think the common and most efficient way is networking.
This is when you find a person in a studio you want to work in and ask this person for help. The best option if you have something in common with this person, e.g. you know each other, or you have at least a common friend or maybe you are from the same town or graduated from the same university. So you say "Hello" and ask for the help, but not directly to get a job in this studio, better to ask if he/she could assist in a resume and show-reel polishing, query for some advice on how to improve your chances to get a good position. It's basically a lot of time on Linkedin or in such places like this forum.

I know how hard it could be to get a new job at a new place so I wish you luck! And patience.

Thanks for your reply Kiryha! I need to update my LinkedIn profile so I think it will help me to meet someone who works in this places :). Btw I took a look at your Github post, I need to improve my skills in Houdini and Im sure that your VEX guides will help me a lot!

Thanks for all.

Rober.
