Are you a producer, recruiter, or project manager looking for the best talent to staff your next project?
For mid-Journey and professional artists looking to hook up with a project, studio or to let producers know you are available?
We are happy to announce that the Creative Talent Network Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, is hosting the Raise the Bar Recruiting program, returning this fall during CTNX 2022. No ticket required for online only meetings. Free to all mid-journey and professional artists. No ticket required.
Raise the Bar Recruiting: Calling all artists who are looking for a job in the animation field and feel they are ready for that 'interview'. It is FREE to all mid-journey and professional artists. No tickets are required. The Raise the Bar Recruiting program pops up during the Creative Talent Network Animation eXpo weekend and at other events throughout the year. It is a global virtual pop-up and job fair opportunity. Artists upload their work to through the Creative Talent Network application portal during the time allowed. Recruiters and talent seekers then are given access to browse the amazing gallery of talent. You let CTN know the names of talent you want to meet with and you are given their contact information to make future meeting arrangements at your discretion. The meetings do not need to take place during the event weekend however the uploading and browsing does. As a studio you are looking for talent you are offered the opportunity to have your own recruiting section.
RBR IS NOT A PORTFOLIO FEEDBACK SESSION. (Click here for Career Corner Portfolio Critiques)

Not everyone is selected for an interview. Selections are made at the discretion of the recruiter. No tickets required for online only meetings. If you meet in-person at the event, a ticket to the event is required.
Some in person applicants will have meetings scheduled during the CTN animation eXpo event weekend. Not all meetings will take place during the CTN Animation eXpo Event weekend. Meetings may take place in Zoom after the event in the following weeks. All applicants will be notified either way about their status by November 14th, 2022.
INTRO AND ELIGIBILITY: CTN's Raise the Bar Recruiting events are for artists that are 18 years of age and up. This is an opportunity to potentially get an interview for a job.
