    “While artistic talent is key, students need much more to be successful in digital media. They need to understand how extensive these industries are and how many different segments hire digital artists, how to manage their finances, how to research opportunities and find the hiring managers, how to present themselves to potential employers, and all the other general career and personal management skills necessary to succeed in any field ˜ with the specialized “twist” of the entertainment and media industries.”
