Many networking events are not for me. As an aspiring film director, I understand that the opportunities won’t be handed to me. I wish to be as hands on as possible.
Contacting local production companies and networking via email and in person helps. Often the networking events at Canisius College are focus on corporations and may not be a good fit for some Digital Media majors. There several companies like Rich’s and M&T, that have great positions to offer. Personally it is not my cup of tea.
I am grateful for the networking opportunities during this pandemic. Internships like Full Circle Studios has given me a lot of experience and the opportunity to put my abilities to the test. The network connections I have gotten from such opportunities are going to help further my career goals, and hopefully lead me to a film related job.
