Breaking Barriers with Chase, Sean and Jason

,
Talking shop with alumni who work in the entertainment industry is one of our favorite things to do. It's refreshing to hear their candid stories about breaking into the business. Sometimes it's an anecdotal story about engineering a successful track and other times it's a deeper conversation about overcoming setbacks. There's always a piece of solid career advice that our students can take away from these virtual discussions. In case you missed any of our Black History Barrier Breaker LIVE events, here are the highlights from those chats.
