The career path of Bryce P. Imbesi ’10 (Center Moriches, N.Y.), a music industry and recording technology grad, is an apparent example of the importance of internships in acquiring a job after graduation. Less than a year after he has graduated, he landed a full time position in the department in which he interned. Presently, Bryce is a licensing coordinator in the Music Resources Department at EMI Music Publishing in New York, N.Y.
As a synchronization licensing intern for EMI Music Publishing, he assisted licensing directors and coordinators with music licensing for film, film festival, merchandise and stage projects. Now, Bryce handles daily music licensing needs for video game and app projects.
He learned the “importance of [networking] in several courses; most notably in Music Publishing, Licensing and Copyright with Professor Christopher Cabott.”
Christopher Cabott, a full-time entertainment lawyer, was Imbesi’s most memorable professor. Professor Cabott commutes from the Philadelphia area for one Saturday morning class each spring semester. Bryce said that Cabott “inspired the rest of the class to actively participate in the classroom and during conference calls with industry professionals.”
“Getting internships and proving yourself in your roles are key to landing a job out of college,” advised Bryce. “Do not be afraid to network and meet new people.”
