Career Counseling for Students and Grads
Career Development’s mission is to provide the assistance and resources that will support students and graduates as they navigate the challenging path to creating and sustaining a successful career. The keys to unlocking and managing a successful career in the entertainment industry are research, networking, preparation, professionalism, and the ability to stay current with industry practices and trends. The Career Development Department works in conjunction with students’ education curricula to prepare them with interpersonal and professional skills, support their vocational goals and help to bridge the gap between academia and the workplace.
