We are seeing a lot of progress on the jobs front – event event/conference/concert jobs are slowly coming back!

Employers are preparing to make up for lost time in 2021. In the meantime, now is the time to hit up employers as they plan for a huge return of activity in the coming year! While some employers run the same postings for months, many of these are worth applying to as the employer is collecting resumes till they are able to start the jobs safely. Other job postings represent jobs and gigs starting now. Anyone with questions about any postings or network events posted here, please contact brad@mediatech.edu

Keep in mind 2020 grads can still use their unused studio time! Although, we will need to accommodate the schedules of current students and classes, we can now schedule your owed studio time due to you! This is ideal time to use for booking clients/jobs. Contact the school to schedule your time but if you are booking a job, please also let me know at EMAIL BRAD HERE– Film Students, if you have a job you want to do in Live Sound or Studio I, let me know about this – we want to support you!!!
