Location: Burh Hall 1
Hear from Simone Nelson, Managing Director & Haley Seppa, Creative Operations & Internship Program Manager fromThe California State University Entertainment Alliance  (CSUEA) about their work, programs and resources for students looking to enter the ultra-competitive entertainment arts and media industry. They will also share their own journeys from campus to career and might cover such topics as:
  • “How Do I Get My Toe in the Industry Door” (never mind my whole foot)?
  • What are the different kinds of jobs available in Entertainment besides the obvious?
  • Do I have to live in Los Angeles or a major city to work in media arts and entertainment?
  • What kind of opportunities are available through the Cal State Entertainment Alliance?
  • What’s good about the CSUEA internship program vs. one through my Department & College?
  • If a lot of entertainment industry is about “who you know” – how do we get to know those in the know?
  • Why they like their work and want to you to too.

You are welcome to come prepared with questions – except the meaning of life.  (If they knew that they probably would not be speaking to our class … ;)
All students welcome!
