Mark’s spending the day sweet-talking engineering companies at an on-campus career fair. He spent yesterday afternoon researching the companies who would be on campus today, and found a really, really cool dream company to try to court today:
They build rocket ships. Or something like that. Given my love’s background in laser beam technology (he blows stuff up with lasers — true story), I think i would be a good fit.
But it’s in California.
Though he assured me he would never, ever get a job there in a million years (he just informed me that he’s been in line for a half hour), I decided to find something I would enjoy in the vicinity of Spacex — you know, on the off chance he does get a job there. It’s become my coping strategy any time he mentions a cool job opportunity that is most definitely not in Iowa. Many of them fall into that category.
Lo, and behold. 45 minutes from Spacex is CalArts.
It’s an art school which offers an MFA in Graphic Design, has one Ed Fella (amazing typographer) on staff, AND used to be headed up by April Greiman, as I learned just yesterday in my graphic design history class.
Who’s April Greiman? She’s a graphic design rock star, who apparently, unbeknownst to both of us, highly influenced most of my work in college. Though, her experimentation was on the computer, while mine was off the computer (because my laptop broke one semester, and I made due).
Take a peek.
Anyway, CalArts would be my ultimate dream school, now that I know it exists and all. Oh, and there’s that $40K price tag.
So, Spacex, if you’re hiring, hire Mark. And please pad his salary to include enough to pay tuition for his other half at CalArts. Thanks.
What’s your dream job?
