The event is to be held at ATTIC BUENA PARK on Saturday, October 8, 2011. Doors open at 3:30pm, with resume workshops beginning at 4pm. Time slots reserved for individual resume critiques and internship opportunities given to those who had RSVPed on a first come, first served basis. The career panel will begin at 5pm followed by a meet and greet with the panelists.
“The concept of BEHIND THE HUSTLE is to show cool people with cool jobs. There are so many young adults that are having trouble following their own path because there is so much pressure to be a successful doctor or engineer. There is nothing wrong with those particular career choices, but what the main problem is is that parents don’t realize is that kids have other passions,” remarks Don Kang, Content Manager for BEHIND THE HUSTLE. “We want to help give them a clear direct path with their goals and provide them with inspirational stories and the right tools to succeed.”
“The irony about Streetwear is that it seems like things are at a grassroots level, but it’s a lifestyle and a business. There are so many kids that have never been to an industry networking event. Streetwear is not going to survive if these kids stay unpolished. When they are well-oiled and on point like Crooks and Castles, that's the only way that things are going to move,” adds Nicholas You, Marketing Manager of ATTIC, who suggested adding resume workshops for the very first time. “With this, we’re providing the means for these kids to give them insight but in the end it’s up to them where they take it to make something out of nothing.”
Giveaways will be given throughout the event provided by SKUNK JUICE, PROOF, and merchandise from CROOKS AND CASTLES, DIAMOND SUPPLY CO. and BLACK SCALE. Further, THE LIME TRUCK, winner of The Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race” Season 2, will vend food to the guests and public, and DJ WREX from ACRYLICK will be djing the event.
