Are Artsy Students Screwed Over By Job Recruiting?

Posted: Updated:

Azza Cohen, a sophomore at Princeton University, is very serious about pursuing the creative arts. The problem is she didn't feel like there were many opportunities to move forward after graduation.

"There's no one coming to campus offering me dinner and saying, 'Would you like to direct a film?'" Cohen said on HuffPost Live.

However, after writing an article for the Daily Princetonian, she had extensive meetings with career services to improve how they help students seeking careers in the arts. It ultimately led to a bigger question: Why is the culture of an elite university like Princeton pushing people towards careers notably in finance instead of presenting a full range of careers?
