Arts, Humanities, & Communication Career Panel Coverage – Elliot Lee

Today at the University Partnership building the school held a Career Panel. The panel consisted of five speakers, each with their own unique professional background. The speakers were Dan Connors, Donna Bundy, James Greene Jr., Sebastian Sanchez, and Randall Smith. As the discussion started the speakers began with their personal and professional backgrounds. the people attending consisted of mainly students with a fair amount Seminole State alumni .

The conference was very insightful and informative and many of the speakers were talking about how they ended up where they are today. When the subject moved to opportunity they had plenty to say Speaker, Sebastian Sanchez said”if the opportunity doesn’t feel right to you, don’t be afraid to say no thanks I’ll wait for the next one.”

“Don’t stay in a job where you don’t enjoy every minute” Donna Bundy said, when discussing her current job. Which was something I really took to heart.

Dan Connors, A Creative Service Director for CBS radio, was talking about how at first he wanted to have a job where he could be on air, after a while he realized that wash;t what he wanted to be doing anymore and eventually became a creative director for the stations. Connors said “that the best thing that you can do, if you know roughly where you wanna go, get in the door doing something…. but bottom line you gotta get the first opportunity before you can even get a shot.”
