WHAT WILL WE TALK ABOUT?
I have worked with lots of CG artists and technologists and helped them successfully navigate their careers as well as grow their skills.
Here are some common topics I discuss with my friends.
I’ll ask questions first to understand the problems you are facing and your goals. Then we do do an audit and a tear-down of your reel or portfolio. I’ll give you direction and actionable tips to ensure your reel has the best chance of landing your dream job.
BREAKING INTO THE INDUSTRY
Breaking into the industry can be difficult. Make it less painful by having an industry expert guide you. Realise you already have what it takes to work in the CG industry. I’ll help you find your strengths. I’ll teach you how to genuinely and effortlessly network to get your first CG job.
ART SCHOOl: YES OR NO?
I’ll help you by asking questions to understand the issues. I’ll walk you through the path of Art School or No Art School. Provide you with a framework to help you to decide what’s best for you.
A career change to CG is exciting when you know that you are making the best decision for yourself. We can work it out and determine the best path for you. Rework your resume to show you are qualified or determine what skills you need to acquire to prepare yourself for make the leap.
WHAT’S MY NEXT STEP?
It’s hard to determines what next best steps are. It’s honestly hard to even know what we want. We can figure it out and make a plan together that gets you to a spot that feels right to you.
Not sure what is your worth? Got multiple offers and aren’t sure what to do? You never want to leave money on the table. We will work together to help you negotiate your best salary. Your starting pay matters as it has a significant impact on your earned income over your career.
HOW SOME OF MY FRIENDS FELT BEFORE OUR SESSIONS…
I felt like I had no proper guidance from a professional and I wasn’t sure how to feel about the work I have been producing.
I felt unsure about myself and about my performance as a brand new TD in the industry. I was unsure about how to best tackle my career as a whole, much less my day to day work life.
WE HAD AN HOUR LONG CALL &
HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED…
I felt more confident about my abilities and better understood the big accomplishments that I achieved after only a few months of working. I felt more equipped to engage my coworkers, as well as my superiors.
Out of these coaching sessions, I was able to not only secure a permanent job after many months of uncertain contract work, I was also able to negotiate a $10,000 salary increase, simply by asking!
Nelson gave me feedback on my work, guidance on how to keep on track and ideas on how to take my portfolio to the next level. I can safely say that I now feel more confident about the direction I am taking with my work and how to move forward with seeking my first job in the industry.
Breaking into the industry is an ongoing uphill battle for me.
Considering the number of years I’ve put into this, I can say it’s fueled by my undying passion for the industry. Through my journey, I’ve had several short-lived successes, but still struggle to reach my end goal.
Speaking with Nelson has opened up a fresh perspective on how to approach my issues.
Nelson brought forth important questions I should be thinking about. The advice I received gave me deeper insight into the industry and also in me.
At the end of our session, I feel rejuvenated by Nelson’s words and it has motivated me to work harder and smarter. The thought of someone devoting their time to realise your own personal goals is truly selfless. I’m grateful to have reached out to Nelson.
