Career development in the entertainment industry is a lifelong process and one of the keys to success is networking with your classmates who eventually become your alumni. Our alumni network is vast and CCH students are working in all areas of the industry - on hit television shows such as NCIS Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, Lost, The Voice, Survivor and So You Think You Can Dance, on blockbuster films such as Maleficent, Jupiter Ascending,The Avengers, The Hunger Games, Titanic, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Slumdog Millionaire, Twilight: Eclipse, and Transformers 3, and on special effects animated films such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. These are just a few of the many credits our students can claim on their resume and their credits increase each year as they network both in and out of the CCH alumni network through the Career Development Office.
