We’ve had a good run, but the CAS Tumblr is saying goodbye today, June 16. You’ll also have to part ways with @SCADCAS on Twitter. Don’t worry though, you can still find all things CAS—workshops, employer visits, calls for entry—on SCAD.edu and on all the main SCAD social platforms as we’ll become a regular contributor there.

Feature Friday: Tiffani Taylor

For our last Feature Friday on the CAS Tumblr, we took a trip to Tiffani Taylor's (M.A., art history, 2003; B.F.A., painting, 2002) inspiring gallery in Savannah where we talked about her recent collaboration with Emory University and the Healthcare Ethics Consortium, SCAD alumni relations, and got some advice for SCAD students. Her most helpful advice: Create your own website, social media and business card before you graduate, collaborate with others from different disciplines/fields, and continue to create in times of fear and uncertainty.

CAS Tip: Thinking About Grad School?

Ah, summer break! It’s a great time to relax without finals and projects, but it’s a perfect time for career prep. CAS adviser Alicia Mejias encourages you to think about pursuing further education after graduation whether it’s a year or three years from now. Here’s what you need to know:

Why choose a master’s degree?

  • Is it required for the field you wish to pursue?
  • Do you want to do research and gain expertise in a particular field?
  • Do you want to teach in the future and pursue a Ph.D.?
  • Are you interested in a new subject/field?

Why choose a doctoral degree?

  • Do you want to teach and research at the university level?
  • Do you want to do research within your chosen field?
  • Do you want to be a better candidate for a future promotion?

The Search:

Remember all the decisions you made when choosing SCAD as your undergraduate? Well, there are just as many when selecting a grad school.  Use your time over the summer to visit schools and request information. When searching think about the following:

  • Location
  • Size
  • Notable Programs 
  • Public vs. Private School
  • Opportunities for experience/research?
  • Alumni Network
  • Scholarships
  • Fellowships

The Application Process:

Take the time and research what the schools’ application requirements are.  If a letter of recommendation is required, then remember to give your professors enough time to complete your recommendation as sometimes it can take longer than you anticipated. The summer is also a great time to begin studying for any exams that you may have to take. You can find free practice exams online. Find out if the following is required:

  • Is a GRE, GMAT or other exam required?
  • Essay
  • Resume/CV
  • Letters of Recommendation

Want to discuss your grad school search or borrow exam materials? CAS is eager to help. Schedule an appointment with your CAS adviser. And mark your calendars, Alicia will be hosting a grad school workshop this fall to help you explore the search and prep process. Stay tuned for more information!

NOTE: Want more CAS Tips? You won’t find them on the CAS Tumblr anymore. Sad, we know, but sign-up for Career News to get a weekly CAS Tip in your inbox every Wednesday!

CAS Tip: How to Reach Out to SCAD Alumni

CAS adviser and SCAD alumna, Maya Smith has the tips you need when reaching out to SCAD alumni:

- Choose one way to reach out (phone, email, LinkedIn, social media) and stick with it.

- If someone referred you, then say so. Name the person (professor, career adviser, other SCAD alum, etc.) who gave you the alum’s name.

- State who you are (recent SCAD grad, current student, etc.) and your major. Then, you can launch into your brief elevator speech.

- Do your research and express what you admire about the person. Provide a brief comment acknowledging their work or career.

- Clearly state why you’re reaching out. But, do not ask for a job.

- Always thank them for their time and consideration.

- Have someone read your message before sending it to check for appropriate tone, spelling and grammar.

-Be patient when following-up. Give the alum at least a week to reply. If they don’t respond within a month, then be appreciative when following-up and politely remind them of who you are, what you’re looking for and when you first contacted them. Thank them again.

- If you don’t hear back from the alum, then that’s OK. There are other SCAD alumni that you can reach out to. Keep an open mind and talk with your professors and career adviser to find other contacts.
