This panel will focus on the various ways by which media industry professionals learn their trade. As a result of economic, technological and cultural shifts, the routes by which one gets a job in a media industry is rapidly transforming. In the process, whether they are seeking above or below the line positions, the ways by which these workers learn their trade is also in a state of flux. While the number of film schools in America continues to grow, many necessary skills are often still learned on the job. Even with the continual anecdotal stories of actors and directors being discovered via YouTube, Hollywood and other media industries continue to heavily rely on a system of guild and union apprenticeships, internships and unpaid labor.

attacks of New York and Washington D.C. in 2001, the 2004 train attacks in Madrid and the London bombings in 2005.
