And the Oscar goes to... a career in Media

Updated: Dec 4, 2019

Even if you didn't watch the Oscars, we know you've seen all the memes.

And there are so, so many. Break up with your girlfriend, Bradley - we're bored!

We'd like to thank the Oscars for giving us this opportunity to highlight the media industry for our members who are interested in making the career switch!

The media industry is #broad. As a first step, try to figure out what type of media you might want to get into. Here is a list of some ideas to help you narrow it down.

Working in media comes with its pros and cons. The Balance Careers highlights a few, so take a look and see if you think changing careers or industries is still worth it.

You know you want to work in entertainment, but how do you find the job? This article from The Muse provides a good starting point.
