Discover how to get a job at Industrial Light & Magic


Gnomon is offering a unique chance to discover Industrial Light & Magic’s advice on applying to the studio and tips for building a successful career in visual effects at a free event at its Hollywood campus this Thursday.

Advice on job applications and VFX careers from senior ILM recruiters
The ILM Perspective: Careers, Recruiting, and Industry Advice features talks from ILM senior recruiter Lori Beck and senior manager Jennifer Coronado on the history of the legendary VFX studio, and how to apply for jobs.
