where I camps has been terrific as it

helped us bridge the gap between

employers and education started as a

filmmaker if I do not take this workshop

where as this internship I feel like I'd

be seriously misguided towards what I

would want to do in the film industry

you get to hear from people who are

veterans in their fields and really know

their stuff and you get to hear things

you're not going to find in a book or a

curriculum it just helps a lot getting

advice from actual professionals

colleges don't have the opportunity to

offer students the ability to really

know what it's like to go into a job how

do you prepare how do you dress what's

appropriate to put on your resume what's

important to put on social media what's

important not to put on social media go

come to one of these workshops do it

next one honestly I'm gonna I'm

definitely going to be looking for more

of these I'm signing up for them
