What a fun week for film fans between W&M's Global Film Festival and the Oscars on Sunday! I hope you are enjoying it all as much as I am!
With Spring Break right around the corner as a reminder that the semester is about halfway over, you are probably wondering what you'll be doing this summer. If you are in the midst of a job search, now is the time to be ramping up your networking efforts so you can build up your professional contacts. If you are looking for internships, this is the peak time for applications. If you are not seeing a posted internship, contact the company to inquire whether they have a program. I'll link a variety of resources below to use for your search.
Also, if you don't have plans over Spring Break, I'm taking a group of students to Richmond to explore creative careers on Thursday, March 9. Contact me for details.
