Graduates working in production often join the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), the labor union representing technicians, artisans and craftspeople in the entertainment industry, including live theatre, motion picture and television production, and trade shows. They may work on contract or may choose to freelance through the union.
Graduates may also choose to transfer credits and resume experience to B.F.A, B.Ed or B.A. or specialty study elsewhere in design or technology.
