If I were to stay on my current path I would want to work at Apple once I am done at CSULB. I feel like this will be a good fit for me since I love technology and I am originally from the Bay Area. I connected on LinkedIn with one of my mom’s friends since I know that he is one of the creative directors for Apple. I think that he could be a valuable connection for me since I have known him since I was younger and he has a high position within Apple. The only problem that I am thinking about is that Apple is already a very large company so there is a lot of structure and I find it easier to work when it is a bit less structured.
Since I was young I have been interested in film. I would make a lot of projects with my friends growing up. I was able to enhance my skills in high school since I took AP Photo and even though a lot of the class was photography we still had a lot of guest artists come in and help us with our video projects. I have met a lot of people here at CSULB who’s family in some way is connected in the movie industry so I think that I could get to know them and then have them help me. I would love to be in the editing side of movie making since I love to see how you can change the message and make the viewers experience that much better by just adding a few key things.
If I could do any job I would choose to work at ESPN. I have had a long love for sports and I think that if I could study sports I would enjoy it. I would not choose to do this instead of my current path since it is very hard to progress in the ranks at ESPN. Also, the starting jobs within the industry are in journalism and I want to do the audio and visual side of production rather than write articles about sports.
