Recap: Los Angeles Career Networking Event

Published May 26, 2018

Grads shared industry insight, swapped tips, and took part in career service panels.

On May 22, Full Sail's Career Development department hosted a Career Networking event at the Sofitel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., 185 alumni spent time connecting with employers, taking part in several industry panels presented by fellow grads, and learning from career service panels sponsored by Career Development.

Some of the grad-presented sessions included “The Art of Business by Artists” by Culley Bunker, Keith Guerrette, and Nathaniel Howe, which looked into creating your own business as an artist; “From Script to Set,” hosted by William Clevinger and Bob Riley, gave a behind-the-scenes look into producing feature films and being on set as an Assistant Director; while “Sound Advice” gave us a look into post-production and live sound with Fernando Delgado and Jonathan Mayer. Several Hall of Fame Inductees working in the L.A. area also discussed how they broke into the industry and some of the obstacles they still face today.

Throughout the day, Career Development conducted panels lending their expertise to alumni. Creative Writing Advisor Lana Morgan gave tips on writing in her “Inside Tips for Your Writing Career” workshop, Game Design Advisor Kendra Stracuzzi lent her knowledge on the game industry with “You Don’t Know the Half of It,” and Industry Outreach Representative Rachele Christian gave networking advice in her workshop “No Fear Networking."
