Finding yourself in a career with the wrong job description will cost you time, relationships, and possibly your health. In this panel, we'll honestly discuss reasons why certain jobs may or may not be the right fit for everyone, even if technically qualified. Additionally, we'll discuss ways to adjust a career path to fit intricacies in personality without jeopardizing future opportunities. Our speakers will provide the audience with a better understanding of how individual skill sets can be applied to any career path.

This session is part of our Career Development Workshops 
Calling all students, young professionals, aspiring entrepreneurs, and those looking for their big break in the industry! Educating and inspiring the next generation of music business executives is a major part of Music Biz’s commitment to the industry, and we’re excited to embody that commitment at this year’s Conference. Our Career Development Workshops will guide you on a path for long-term success in sessions led by those who have already tread on that path.
