Alumni Charlie Colombo recently spoke at CBAT@Work. He’s a Producer|Aerial DP for Loch & Key Productions in Knoxville. He began his talk to students and other professional guests by saying, “My (newer) title is Producer | Aerial DP. That scratches the surface of what I’m doing in my current role. Having to wear a lot of different hats in the production world is actually part of what I’ll touch on. In our market especially, being well rounded in multiple aspects of production provides great job opportunities.”
Different from a traditional career fair, CBAT@Work facilitates student and employer networking through a conference social environment. Typically, an alumni panel comprised of recent graduates from the college will share information about their professional journeys, key learning points from their first year on the job, critical skills, and general advice to current students.
