Alumni Career Advisor in the Arts! We recently received a note from one alum who is reaching out to assist the undergraduates at Dartmouth. Here is a portion of her email:
“If there are ever any undergraduates who are looking to learn more about working in the arts industry, please let me know. I remember …. when I was an undergraduate trying to figure out how to break into this industry …. and would like to make sure that those seeking professions in the arts industry from Dartmouth have a sufficient understanding of not only where to look, but what the industry is like and what skills are needed to be able to get a foot in the door. Look up “Lizzie Bildner” in the Dartmouth Career Network.
