Here's what student attendees learned:
I appreciated a panelist talking about how she got a job at Disney Theatrical after 7 years of applying. I only just started my internship search this semester and got several application rejections. It’s great to know that a rejection (or several!) doesn’t mean you will never work for that company.
I liked the advice to have a good work ethic and to take on any project, even if you think it is too big. This is a key takeaway for me since I tend to back down if I feel I am unmatched in my skills.
Keep your line of communication open. Don’t settle when you don’t get an opportunity, it might come back around later. When it comes to your career, don’t set yourself up on a timeline, your opportunities will come to you when it's time.
