Student comments on Career Night 2013:

"I'd absolutely recommend Career Night to other BC students. I received great advice, and the alumni were all easy to talk to. I've already made connections and secured interviews!"

"There were many enthusiastic and passionate individuals from a variety of different fields in the arts community who could answer our questions fully and honestly."

Since its inception in 1999, Career Night for the Arts has provided an opportunity for students and alumni to dialogue and develop relationships. Each year over one hundred students join 20-25 BC alumni who have established successful careers as musicians, composers, conductors, photographers, graphics designers, painters, arts editors, producers, directors, stage directors, arts journalists, museum administrators, film editors, writers, actors, instructors, consultants, and arts attorneys. BC students can move around the museum informally talking with alumni from various artistic professions.  Students will receive information about the alumni present and can choose who they would like to speak to and move at their own pace in this informal networking environment.
