Hi! I'm Shelby Hancock, the founder of Music Industry Entryway (MIE). I created this website as a space where aspiring music industry professionals can come together and network, find helpful resources and upcoming events and panels. I graduated college during a global pandemic where the job market is very low, so I know how discouraging it can be while searching for jobs. That's when I decided to create MIE after almost a year of applying for jobs and getting rejection email after rejection email. I started using LinkedIn more discovered some amazing resources that are available for those in the music industry. I realized how difficult it can be to find these resources since there are so many. I thought, it would be a great idea to not only put all of these resources in one spot for new grads and those looking for an entry level music industry job but also create a community where we all can come together and talk. My hope is to help encourage those looking for jobs to not give up and see there is a whole community supporting them.
