Laika Visits Sheridan College to Recruit Animators
“Betse Green, Recruitment Manager from the animation company Laika, paid a visit to Sheridan on March 12, 2013. Sheridan has long been a destination on her list and we were very happy that she made a trip for us. Laika has set up a formal College/University relations program, through which they will be hiring interns, including students who are returning to school and graduates. Betse spoke to our 3rd and 4th year Bachelor of Animation students, as well as post graduate Computer Graphics students, and she held portfolio reviews with selected students. Betse was looking for students showing interest in stop motion, Computer Graphics and story & design. We hope that Betse and Laika will bring some Sheridan students on board soon as both interns and in permanent roles. Betse had great feedback on our students and commented that they seemed eager, bright and very talented. She was proud to bring back her notes to her Art Directors to review. ”
