A Message From Haverford’s Media, Entertainment, and Sports Affinity Group Committee

A Message From Haverford’s Media, Entertainment, and Sports Affinity Group Committee

The Haverford alumni community includes a number of affinity groups, organizations which offer connections around topics and issues of shared interest. Our affinity group, the Media, Entertainment, and Sports Group, is comprised of Haverford alums that work across the spectrum of the Entertainment/Media Industry. Professional Sports, Content Creation, Corporate Strategy, and Talent Representation are just a few of the many subsections of the industry represented by your alums. You may not be thinking about it yet, but the time to take the next step in your career will arrive faster than you think. Whether you’re a first-year student looking to learn more about career paths, a sophomore considering internships, or a senior looking to burnish your resume, we want to be there for you when it’s time to start considering life after Haverford. We’re reaching out because we want to help position you for success. In our conversations as a group, we’ve acknowledged how Haverford students often aren’t aware of careers in our discipline(s). This is something we want to correct, because not only are we all happy with the paths we’ve chosen, but the Media, Entertainment, and Sports space(s) are perfectly suited for an individual with a liberal arts background to thrive in. We’ve listed our professional backgrounds and our contact information below. We want you to reach us out to us–whether it’s concerning your impending graduation, or just to touch base and get a conversation going, we’d love to hear from you.   Sincerely yours,   Zachary Jacobs ’14 Coordinator, Motion Picture Production, ICM Partners Los Angeles, CA Zachary Jacobs ’14 began his career at ICM Partners...

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

What an event! Last Friday, the Career Offices of Haverford, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore hosted a tremendous event in the field house: Tri-College and STEM Recruiting Day. Employers from STEM fields, non-profits, finance, education, and many other fields came to meet and hire Tri-Co students. Students arrived dressed in their best professional attire for morning registration and the career fair. After a brief orientation and an opportunity to take a professional headshot for their LinkedIn profiles, students reviewed the list of employers who had open interview spaces that afternoon. They then made their way to the career fair and chatted with employers to learn more about their companies. If they were interested in being considered for an interview later that day, they would share their resumes. The career fair wrapped up in the afternoon and employers submitted their picks to the career center staff during lunch. The remainder of the day was then dedicated to interviews! We had LOTS of students pick up additional interviews during the career fair, so the schedules were packed! All in all, the day was a great success! Happy employers and happy students make for happy career center staff! We hope to see you next year!...

Benefits of a Gap Year After College or High School

Benefits of a Gap Year After College or High School

Benefits of a Gap Year After College or High School An Alternative for New High School and College Graduate   Reposted from The Balance Careers | BY PENNY LORETTO | Updated December 11, 2018 | Original Article Here As graduation approaches and many students have not found a job and are not interested in immediately going to grad school, some have considered taking a gap year when school ends. People are finding that a gap year affords them the time to spread their wings and find out what they really want to do with their future. In the past, it was believed that getting a job or going immediately on to graduate school were the only options. But with many more choices available and in a slow economy, taking a gap year after college can be a worthwhile—and economical—experience.   Who Should Consider Taking a Year Away From Studies Of course, there are students who already know what they want to do and have known for quite a long period of time. Some students are so determined and aware of their future aspirations early on while others are still sorting things out throughout their college years and beyond. The important thing is that everyone is different and some people may make their decisions early, while others take a little longer in the decision-making process.   How Taking a Gap Year May Help A gap year experience can truly be a time to get to know yourself better. Trying new things and meeting new people can be enlightening and a positive experience where you can also take time to reflect on your personal strengths, interests, and skills that...
