BIMM Careers Day for Applicants – Find Your Path into Music

5 March, 2018

In 2016, the music industry began to experience a surge in growth which continues to this day. The number of jobs across the entire sector currently stands at an impressive 142,208, with the UK market being valued at £4.4 billion.

BIMM prides itself of educating and preparing people looking to forge a career in this industry, whether they’re a future performer, producer, engineer, promoter, manager, journalist, publisher or otherwise. We show you how the industry works and offer great opportunities to gain valuable real-life industry experience while you study.

As part of our commitment to provide the best music industry education possible, we’ve decided to offer new applicants for 2018 the chance to realise the different career paths which lay before them by attending a special careers day and networking event,  ‘BIMM Careers Day for Applicants – Find Your Path into Music’

We’ll look at how BIMM degrees – particularly the non-performance degrees – will help you find your own path into the industry, be it into a full-time job or setting up a new business. The key to success is getting to know people, so we’ll be including networking sessions and expert panels, ensuring you leave with a fist full of contacts and a plan for the next steps to take in your career path.

We look forward to meeting you!
