Gettysburg College students go to LA for career guidance


Moving to Hollywood is a common goal for many individuals who wish to enter the entertainment industry. In order to help make this dream a reality, Gettysburg College's Center for Career Development (CCD) took students on a trip to Los Angeles.

"It makes a huge difference when students are considering careers to be able to talk to someone who is doing what they want to do," said Kathy Williams, director of the CCD. "They can get the real story about what they should and shouldn't be doing to break into the field and be successful."

On the trip, students met a group of alumni who work in a variety of fields, including advertising, writing and comedy. Participants also attended a presentation by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Some students had the opportunity to visit the Disney production lot, studio and archives, while others attended a taping of "The Tonight Show."

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of professionals in the entertainment industry is expected to increase over the next several years.
