Career Center staff will also answer questions about internships, job searching, student employment, portfolios, resumes, Handshake, career development and more. 

Our main event features Marcos, keynote speaker and Columba’s first Alumni Artist in Residence. Through his work with Da Internz, Marcos has become an entertainment influencer, producing music for Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Ludacris, Nas and Justin Bieber. He will share his professional experiences and successes and provide you with guidance as you begin your own career path.

Also at this event, you’ll have a chance to network with a number of remarkable Columbia alumni who will share insight on their own internships and who are now making their marks in various arts and media industries.
