  1. Loughborough University Careers Fair

    Leave a Comment

    On Wednesday we attended Loughborough University’s Careers Fair which was aimed at the alternative industries.  Throughout the day we met and spoke with students who were interested in working within the music industry.  We discussed and advised them on the different job roles that exist and some of the career paths they could follow based on their skills and their career ambitions.  The most common question of the day seemed to be I love music but I have no musical training or a non musical background so can I get a job in music?   We hopefully went someway to dispelling the myth that you don’t have to be an accomplished musician to work within the industry or have a music degree. It proved to be an enjoyable and successful day.  Have a look at the careers section of our website for more information and advice on careers within the music industry.

  2. Loughborough University Career Fair

    On the 11th of May, Horus Music attended at the Springboard “A different careers fairs” at the Loughborough University in the James France Exhibition Centre.

     

    The success of the Springboard initiative shows that there is clearly a demand for a fair that includes areas not covered at the more traditional Business, IT and Engineering orientated fairs.  The Springboard fair held last year had over 44 exhibitors and was attended by approximately 1200 students.

     

    The last fair received positive feedback from both exhibitors and students alike:

    ‘Finally a more relevant careers fair’ – final year Social Sciences Student

    ‘It’s been a really useful day’ – first year International Relations Student

    ‘Excellent organisation! Great students, polite, friendly and highly employable!’ BPP

    ‘Very well organised and extremely efficient Careers Staff! Good range of students and far more than expected!’ Teach First

    The career fair was a chance to network with representatives providing advice on job areas where formal graduate schemes are scarce, e.g. media, sport, arts, design, environment, public, voluntary sectors and music.

     

    This year we had a lot of interest from students wishing to find out more about the company, and the Music Industry itself. We had a number of students ask us questions regarding careers within Publishing and Management, and how they could pursue this as a career.

     

     

    Some students had no idea what area of the industry they wanted to work in but knew that they wanted a career within it. After investigating what is was they enjoyed about music, it was easier to pinpoint a number of different career paths that they could look at and aspire to.
