Film, Television and Talent
A common point of entry into film or television is to start as an assistant. Assistants support multiple projects and their responsibilities are varied and frequently change by the day. Assistant roles provide broad exposure to the field and set the stage for learning about what types of roles one might choose to pursue down the line.
Through Career Compass, I have been able to find and reach out to alumni that have been able to come and speak to current students about their personal and professional experiences at various events. It's been an enormous help to me as a student leader wanting to connect with alumni, not only on my own behalf but the behalf of others as well.
