By Professional Field (& Top Post-Berklee Degree)
If exploring a career, I strongly recommend that you glance at all interviews in a professional field that interests you, as people in the same field can have very different jobs. For example, among the marketing people, one is a one-person operation at a start up that sells computer services to businesses, another works for a craft brewery and has one assistant, while a third is at a large advertising firm and has an extremely specialized job.
