October 29, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources
Keep Calm and Let’s Catch Up
Happy rainy Friday all!
When I asked my marvelous student worker – the one who designs and edits this very newsletter – what I should address in this week’s “From the Advisor,” he said “Well, it’s the time of year when everyone starts to get tired and loses some motivation. Maybe a friendly reminder to keep pushing because we’re nearly there!”
I will keep things light and share some events in the arts, media and communication space you might have missed and highlight a few upcoming activities and events.
So grab a warm mug of something and let’s catch up!
1. Alumni Chats have gone very well, and there are a number to watch when you’re feeling up for it. Why watch? You’ll learn all about skills you need to get into the industry plus timelines, deadlines, tips and tricks!

2. Want to learn more about entertainment & media in LA/NYC? Are you a graduate student or a senior? Last chance to register for the GEMA Externship program. The application deadline is November 5th. For more information and to apply, go HERE (new window).
3. Introduction to arts, media and communication careers from first-year to recruitment. I’m going to lead a very casual “101” workshop this coming Wednesday. First-years and sophomores, this is for you! (Juniors and seniors, you are welcome to attend as well.) Register HERE (new window).
4. Virtual Road Trips to the Real World. So many GREAT employers here: The Phillips Collection, WarnerMedia, Washington Performing Arts, Google. Register HERE (new window).
I could go on, but I’m going to lean hard into the keep calm and cozy mug atmosphere I’ve tried to create. And on that note, for a little Halloween fun, join the Spooked (new window) crew and the always engaging Glynn Washington for a special internship edition, Fright at the Museum (new window).
Take care, Jacki
