Creative Arts & Communication
Hiatt engages a full ecosystem on and off-campus to support students interested in the creative arts and communication fields in collaboration with faculty in the Theater Arts and Film Studies departments, multiple Undergraduate Departmental Representatives (UDRs), Brandeis alumni like BOLD 9 awardee Iyvon E. ’13 and actor Michelle Simone Miller '11, as well as employers, recruiters and community partners.
Industry-Focused Engagement and Events
Hiatt regularly brings together experts, employers and alumni to meet and speak with students in classes, online and in-person for exploration, preparation and networking.
Creative Arts & Communication Employer Engagement at Brandeis
Employers use a variety of programs to meet with students and identify and cultivate talent. They regularly schedule information sessions, online workshops, case competitions and site visits as options to engage with Brandeis students and alumni.
At Hiatt, we emphasize that although campus recruiting is a part of an employer’s engagement process, it should not be the primary focus when it comes to attending and participating in employer-led activities. Students should approach each event as an opportunity to engage, learn and connect with professionals in their desired fields.
Participating employers include:
- The Walt Disney Company
- Sony Pictures
- MLB Advanced Media
- Boston Ballet
- Brooklyn Academy of Music
- Huntington Theatre Company
- Sony Music
Career Outcomes for Creative Arts and Communication
The Hiatt Career Center's annual Beyond Brandeis survey provides insight into the employment and continuing education status of Brandeis University undergraduates within six months of graduation.
Students can utilize Handshake to explore where students, including students at other colleges and universities, completed their internships.
Brandeis graduates in these areas frequently go on to work for top-tier employers, such as The Walt Disney Company, Sony Pictures, MLB Advanced Media, and more.
Working With Hiatt
Hiatt helps Brandeisians know who they are, what they want and how to get there.
College is a time to discover yourself. You get to figure out what you enjoy, where your interests lie and goals for the future. As you find yourself weighing ideas and choices, we can help you to align them with your major or career. As the semesters change, you'll find new experiences waiting for you to take advantage of. They could be in the form of studying abroad, an internship or joining a campus club. When you know what you want, it's time to put it all together! Hiatt will support your professional goals, but we can't do all the work for you.
Your approach should be to stay curious and engaged. There's no one-size-fits-all path or plan to follow. You're unique and staying open to all possibilities while channeling your curiosity and engaging in activities will fuel your success.
