High Up Jobs at SFGAm

Monday, October 14, 2002 6:27 PM

Hey everyone....I'm going to be completing my final year of school at the Illinois Institute of Art this coming year, so basically next spring I'll be done. My major is Visual Communications / Graphic Design, and when I'm in the real world with a real job, I need to be at a large entertainment company that won't fail. SFGAm is half hour away from where I live now currently.

Does anyone have any information on how to pursue, or how to get information, if they even NEED a help in this department....or a promotions department? I've been going to the park since I was 2 with the parents....and now I'm a total junkie, what more could the park want! I've been saving all the brochures since 96, and keep them in a little GAm trapper....how cute, huh?

Does the park make up the logos for new rides / areas, or is that some other company? The brochures each year, I'm sure the park creates, right? Season pass mailers? Commercials? Billboards? Any info is much appreciated.

I know the info line is 249-Info, but I'd feel like a dork calling and asking, or is that what I should do?


You look busted.

Yeah, thats probably what you SHOULD do. They will be happy to send you a packet.

You would probably get a job in promotions, whether they have any full time openings or not, I dont know. The general layout for brochures is done nationally, and what each park does is plug in their seperate info (rides, food, merch, etc...) I don't know if they hire out to do designs for logos, etc. but I do know a friend of mine's dad (he owns a graphic design and sign production facility) he did tell me that his dad did some work for them. How much they do on site? Beats me.

I would just find out where you should send your resume, and then send it. If you have the credentials and would be a valuble employee, you'll get a job somewhere.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

If you know what your dream job is, knock on their door. Dream jobs rarely (if ever) just open up and fall into your lap. Be pushy, and be confident. (Ie: Don't call them up and say "umm, I was wondering .. umm .. if it's not too much trouble .. umm .. if I could come in for an interview.."!)

While I was still living in Australia (before I'd even finished college), I got my dream job all the way in Chicago .. they weren't hiring, I just kept at them until they knew they had to have me.

Don't call 249-Info.

Call this number: 249-2045.

That's what their website says for full-time opportunities. It might just be HR, but it's a number other than INFO, hehe. Hope it works out well for you!
