Anschutz Entertainment Group, the sports and entertainment presenters known as AEG, welcomed more than 30 students from Pasadena’s John Muir High School to its global headquarters in downtown Los Angeles late last month for the first Arroyo Seco Weekend Job Shadow Day, part of its community outreach commitment in conjunction with the upcoming Arroyo Seco Weekend in June.
The students were exposed to the company’s many facets of the sports and entertainment industry and received advice on future career paths.
“This kind of opportunity truly opens doors to a whole new world for our students. The young men and women were very impressed by the hospitality extended by AEG and its employees, and inspired to see themselves in similar roles in the future,” said Timothy Sippel, the principal of John Muir High School.
Following breakfast and a presentation about the company, students received a tour of the Goldenvoice and AEG Presents offices and were paired with a member of the AEG team to get one-on-one advice, receive interviewing tips and additional workplace insight within the entertainment industry.
John Muir High School junior, Fatima Robles said, “It was really cool to get a behind-the-scenes look and learn about AEG.” John Muir High School junior, Alondra Nieto said, “I really liked getting to learn about all of the career options that I didn’t know about before.”
“We enjoyed having the students from John Muir High School spend the day with us. Their enthusiasm and interest in the music profession is inspiring. I hope that what they learned helps to broaden their perspective about the opportunities available to them and provides them with practical advice to help them pursue their dreams,” said Martha Saucedo, executive vice president of external affairs, AEG.
In addition to the Arroyo Seco Weekend Job Shadow, AEG and Goldenvoice will also host the Arroyo Seco Weekend Youth Program on June 20-21.
Students selected to participate in the Arroyo Seco Weekend Youth Program will spend two days at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena learning about careers in music and entertainment including event production, marketing, and concert promotion; in addition to receiving professional advice on personal and career development.
