Recently SPARS partnered with the University of Ohio, The School of Media Arts & Studies and the local University of Ohio AES Student Chapter in presenting another of their popular Ask SPARS Mentoring Webinars. The event was held in the Ohio University Schoonover Center as students had the opportunity to meet on-line and interact with Kirk Imamura, President of SPARS, as well as President of well known NY recording facility, Avatar Studios.
Arranging the webinar was Kyle P. Snyder, School of Media Arts & Studies, Scripps College of Communication at the University of Ohio. The interactive mentoring session included discussions of audio business geographic considerations, which are especially relevant for individuals considering starting their own audio business, strategies on building a career, behaviors critical for success and individual mentoring.
The following quote was received from Kyle Snyder the day after the webinar, “The students were very appreciative and truly enjoyed your presentation last night. I actually received an email this morning asking about the slides so they’ll really be happy.”
The presentation, Some Thoughts on Career Planning, has since been placed on-line and is available to both University of Ohio students and those attending other schools. In addition, recent graduates and other recording professionals will find its contents very helpful with regard to career issues.
