    (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) – For many students at the Art Institute of California – Inland Empire a cool job after graduation would be working for Nickelodeon, one of the top names in children’s entertainment.

    A recruiter from cable network Nickelodeon will be on campus at the Art Institute of California-Inland Empire on Friday, March 14. Allison Mann will meet with students only from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

    “She will tell us what they look for in a portfolio and how students can work there,” said Santosh Oomen, director of the Media Arts and Animation department.

    Mann may find students who are graduating later this year with the skills her company is looking for, and if so, that could lead to someone getting their dream job with Nickelodeon in 2008. But her visit is also for those students who aren’t graduating this year, as they will have more time to tailor their focus and help their chances of having a career in animation at Nickelodeon or somewhere else in the industry.

    The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Game Art & Design, Graphic Design, Web Design & Interactive Media, Interior Design, Fashion and Retail Merchandising and Media Arts & Animation. There are also Associate of Science degrees in Graphic Design and Culinary Arts. Each program is offered on a year-round basis, allowing students to work uninterrupted toward their degrees.

    New classes begin Monday, March 31 at The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire. The classes are offered in the day, evening and on weekends for new and reentry students. For details, or a tour of the campus, call The Art Institute at (909) 915-2100, or go on line to www.artinstitutes.edu/inlandempire.
