Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I apply if I am under 18?
Yes, you can.
- Is this a part time or full time position?
You are working as a freelancer or independent contractor on a per-project commission basis.
- Do I need to speak fluent English?/Do I need to be located in an English-speaking country?
Nope – our team is proudly global.
- Are there incentives for working for Psych2Go?
You will be making a positive impact on millions of viewers and possibly even get to see feel-good comments on your work.
Being a freelancer with a per-project contract means that you can also step down from the position whenever you would need to (although we hope you’ll be able to stay!).
Also, working from home means you get to choose your own hours! We’re very flexible and understanding with animators for life situations and personal matters that get in the way of work, so as long as things are communicated to us properly, we’ve always got your back.
- Do I need a portfolio?
We would highly prefer that you have one on hand – it makes the recruitment process a lot faster.
If not, we can try to find other evaluation methods. Please at least provide 1 sample of your art if you do not have a portfolio.
- I don’t have any experience or skill, but I’m willing to learn. Should I still apply?
You do not need previous work experience in animating. However, some degree of animation and art knowledge is still needed to fulfill the basic requirements of the role.
While we are constantly training our currently on boarded animators to keep them sharp and improving and very much willing to mentor eager applicants, complete newcomers to digital art will likely have a low chance of being accepted.
- Do I need my own animation software? Is there a mandatory software requirement?
We do not separately provide animators with software licenses. As such, there is no mandatory requirement – please use whatever method helps you make the most beautiful animations.
Note that as part of the process of making animations, we will be asking for intermittent WIPs. As such, make sure your workflow leaves room for being capable of rendering before the final product is finished.
- Can I apply and remain anonymous/use an alias?
If you make videos for us, you will be credited with whatever you prefer being called, including any possible username or alias.
However, due to legal reasons, you must provide your legal name and other identifying information to us before taking on a paid project. This information will never be made public or shared with anyone outside of Psych2Go management.
- Did you receive my application?
If you have submitted it to one of the above channels, then yes. If you have not received a response back yet, it is likely that we have passed on your application for this recruitment cycle.
- If I am selected, what can I expect from the process?
Typically the entire process of recruitment takes around 3 weeks or so.
If you are selected, you will get to work with us on a trial project (fully paid!) where you can see how much we fit your professional needs. This entails a system where you will be consistently communicating with a recruiter and offering WIP videos for feedback so that your work can be featured on our channel. If all goes well, that will be your first of many videos that will come to comprise Psych2Go’s body of work!
STAGE 1: We will screen all applicants based on the answers to the application form.
STAGE 2: Sample animation will be assigned (non-paid).
STAGE 3: Trial animation will be assigned (paid).
