Grossmont Union High School District

Those with a passion for music, painting, drawing, dancing or performing can tap into the opportunities in the Arts, Media and Entertainment industry. This Sector offers careers in front of or behind the scenes. In addition, companies need multimedia production and graphic designers to create websites and game designers and programmers to keep gamers playing.
 
Of all the career industries, the Arts, Media, and Entertainment sector requires perhaps the greatest cross-disciplinary interaction because the work in this sector has a propensity to be largely project-based, requiring both independent work and interdependent management skills for career success. New technologies are also constantly reshaping the boundaries and skill sets of many arts career pathways. Consequently, core arts-sector occupations demand constantly varying combinations of artistic imagination, metaphoric representation, symbolic connections, and technical skills. Successful career preparation involves both broad and in-depth academic and technical preparation as well as the cultivation of twenty first-century skill assets, such as flexibility, problem-solving abilities, and interpersonal skills.
