What's your career goal?

Hayden McTaggart
Music Business and Industry

"I'm hoping to work on tours with bands and be more up close and personal with the artists, whether it be through admin-assistance or on-tour marketing. I really like knowing and seeing everything that goes into music, and since it's such a flexible major, you can really do anything with it. I would also love to do freelance gigs like I do now with the Bluegrass Band."
