New! Bloomington Area Vendor Survey
Project Jumpstart is creating a collaborative resource reviewing vendors and recital locations in the Bloomington, IN area. The resource will be available as a downloadable PDF, and will include contact information and unbiased reviews of photographers, videographers, sound engineers, web designers, and recital/gig locations.
We are interested in your experiences! If you have recently rented an off-campus recital space or hired someone to photograph, video, record, or build a website, please give us your opinions. Those who complete the following survey will be entered into a drawing to win their choice of several prizes. Fill out the survey here!
History of Project Jumpstart
Author and nationally recognized career specialist Angela Beeching launched the project in 2010 as a student-centered and student-driven career and entrepreneurial leadership program, presenting career workshops, career resources and advising for students at the Jacobs School of Music. Beeching continued in a mentoring role in 2011 with interim coordinator Peter Thoresen, who expanded the program to provide full-time support with drop-in and individual advising. Now in its third year, Project Jumpstart continues to expand its impact to include career exploration, life/work planning, and assistance in finding meaningful work experience.
