OPEComments from 2017 participants:
The best piece of advice I heard was to stay open to career opportunities, even if it doesn't sound like something you thought you were interested in.

Having a not so typical undergraduate degree  I was surprised to learn that many that this does not hurt your chances of entering a visual arts profession. I got some very good pointers, which helped me to think about certain careers, and in which environment and position I want to work towards.

This program was extraordinarily helpful in career planning and networking, It was so heartening to hear from so many professionals .and further solidified that working in the arts is the rigtht career for me! Everyone was very encouraging!

I was very pleased to meet arts professionals, to learn about their own career trajctories. and to walk awy knowing that you can change your career path/focus multiple times before you find your ideal job

The Career Roundtable gave me a new perspective on how to approach my job search. and helped me to determine my next steps to find opportunities and to market myself.
