Jumpstart your career in media, and apply to attend the 2021 FUTURE NOW Media & Entertainment Conference, where you’ll learn about the industry from today’s top leaders, network with industry professionals, and connect with recruiters for internships and jobs. This is the first conference of its kind, bringing unprecedented access and opportunity for leaders on the forefront of the industry and top college and graduate students to connect, learn, and grow together!
The industry’s most influential leaders, senior executives, and professionals share insights about the broadcast, cable, and digital media businesses, including content creation, distribution, and the latest trends and emerging technologies. Through keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, info sessions with recruiters, and intimate mentoring sessions, media professionals share about how to succeed in the industry and the range of possible job opportunities.
Each day of the conference will cover one of three main areas of the MEDIA INDUSTRY: Day 1 – CONTENT, Day 2 – BUSINESS, and Day 3 -TECHNOLOGY / INNOVATION. The second half of each day will be dedicated to professional skills training, mentoring, and networking with recruiters.
This is a rare and incredible learning and networking opportunity for students to make meaningful connections that will better prepare and position them to pursue their careers upon graduation.
The application materials of those accepted to attend the conference are included in a TALENT RESOURCE PORTFOLIO that FUTURE NOW provides to sponsors and executives in attendance as a resource to help fill internship and job openings. This is not a guarantee for a job, but it is a great opportunity for students to get noticed by companies present at the conference and not get lost in an online abyss!
