My FIDM Experience | beautybylizsomerhalder
My FIDM Fashion Club Scholarship Contest 2012
The job placement is NOT what it claims to be. I had pretty much 0 help throughout my education and afterwards. I got a job at Styles for Less on my own, and when I presented my FIDM Portfolio, they told me those are a dime a dozen! She said they're pretty much all the same. The Career Service Counselors are of no help, I called to ask if they could help me find a local manufacturing company that could help me with development, and they said those don't exist in LA?!?! Well on my own research, I found a company that FIDM already collaborates with??
I am now an Alumni, I can't even use the trend books now in the library, I have to ask a current student to check it out for me, which is always a pain! But for how much money this school costs, you should have lifetime access to those books as alumni. They are pretty much there for homework for FIDM, lame.
The teachers are the best part here! There were some real professionals that really engaged the class, but beware. There are also horrible teachers there too, so make sure you research! So many students complained in my class once, the teacher actually got fired half way through the quarter and we had to start all over again?!
I'm just bummed, they lead a lot more than they can really offer.

FC: How did you choose your major?
CR: I have always wanted be a part of the analytical/strategic side of business but could never shake my need to have my hands in the creative as well. When I explained this to my FIDM Advisor, he told me that the major would give me the best of both worlds.
