The lead ICB gave me with WRMN has turned into something I did not expect and has turned out to be a great opportunity for me.
I was hired back in August without even being interviewed; I landed the position with great demo tapes, according to my Program Director. My position was a part-time production assistant. Duties included, making production for four of their radio stations, board operating, on-air work and normal duties of production. After being there for two months, another position opened up for an Account Executive/On-Air Host, so I applied and three days later, landed the full-time position.
I am now two months into and can not ask for something better. My position included the best of both worlds, sales and my own on-air shift. This position is something I enjoy doing and went to school for. Plus the main thing, I enjoy waking in the morning going to work!
I want to tell all future ICB grads that it can be done. Don’t get frustrated and keep sending out those resumes and demo tapes and learn as much as you can from the excellent ICB staff. They’re teaching and expertise has opened the door for me start a fabulous career.
