SXSW 2018: "Transitioning from College Radio to the Music Industry"

In this panel I learned that building relationships while in college is very important. During my time at Album 88 I need to make connections with promoters, artists, other radio stations, and music labels. In this panel they mentioned that signing up for management positions is a great way to get experience but it is only half of the battle. When doing these various positions, you have to build relationships with these companies now so that once you graduate, you will already have those relationships built. In the panel they also mention to treat working at your school radio station as an internship and learn everything you can, because this will make you stand out from the crowd and will also show the company that you understand the culture and work ethic needed to work in the music industry.
