Do It For Real – Media

Some of Confetti's most talented alumni are coming back to talk life after graduation, securing a job in the industry and everything they have learned along the way.


Do It For Real is all about Confetti students getting real industry opportunities whilst studying, to help them get work in the creative industries.

We’ve invited some of Confetti’s top graduates to talk about the industry experience they’ve gained since leaving, and to answer your questions about the creative industries.

Come and listen to the stories of how they got their first break, navigated the tricky moments getting there, and what working life looks like now. Don’t forget to come armed with lots of questions to ask them!

Take a look at what last year’s panel had to share with students.
