You’ve probably already heard about the recent career trek to LA. Now let me tell you what I learned as a participant.
The trek with friends from the Business of Entertainment Club (Facebook / B-Involved) was a pleasant and unbelievable experience. And it was so because I was prepared. Below are three tips on how you can enjoy a productive career trek from the perspective of a participant.
- Research all the companies, especially the ones you are extremely interested in. In LA, we visited famous studios, advertising agencies, talent agencies, and independent directors. Having information on the companies’ backgrounds gave me many great opportunities to ask informed questions as I met with executives.
- Prepare a distinct brief introduction to confidently share your brand. Everyone is unique and has her own advantage. Grab everyone’s attention with your introduction and gain more opportunities for further internship chances.
- Be polite and respectful to everyone. You are visiting their companies. Obeying to their company rules is compulsory. You are representative of the Carey Business School so please act courteously.
Thank you to students, faculty and staff who made this experience possible and we’ll definitely do more in the future.
