Join us for a panel with decision makers about what they look for in potential hires. We’ll be talking about the qualities and qualifications they want to see when interviewing, as well as what kind of experience you really need to land the job. This event is for people interested in best practices when filling positions as well as those looking to gain employment on film crews and corporate jobs in entertainment. It will be followed by a networking session between those looking to move up and those in a position to hire.
