Sharonda Brown talks about media and gaming careers

Exploring career options

It’s never too early to be thinking about the rest of your life.

That’s the message that David Eisenberg wants students to know. The library media specialist has created a program to provide students with insight into a range of diverse careers directly from people actually working in them. The career roundtables, held in the library during lunch and leisure time, each run 15-20 minutes.  

“I think that the real-world exposure to careers in so many different fields is eye opening,” said Mr. Eisenberg. “Life can go in so many different ways.”

The career series began with Sharonda Brown, mother of two MOMS students and co-manager of a media company that specializes in video production and coordinates e-sports tournaments. The discussion focused on media and gaming careers, and the company’s work running tournaments for games such as “Call of Duty,” “Gears of War,” and “Halo.”

Ms. Brown, who holds a bachelor’s in communications and a master's in media management, also was able to convey to students that a path can be forged from education to employment in a highly competitive and cutting-edge industry. That’s a very practical message to the career series that Mr. Eisenberg would like students to hear.

“A student could find what he wants to do for a living and be more motivated in school,” he said. “The speakers also talked about the School of Hard Knocks and working your way up. Success didn’t come overnight. That’s an important lesson in perseverance, too.”

Most recently, John Cetrulo from “Clipper Magazine” and “Local Flavor” visited to discuss his career in publishing and media, and Pias Tanmoy, professor of computer science and machine learning at University of Asia Pacific, video-conferenced with students to talk about job opportunities involving STEM.

The career series features speakers connected somehow to MOMS staff members or students. Attendance is voluntary so kids can choose the ones they’d like to attend.
