Three More Jobs

Here are three more jobs I found:

HBO - Writer/Producer

Radio and TV Broadcasting

Sports TV Network - Promotions Manager

Time Warner has a lot of jobs based in the New York area for media. Careerbuilder.com had some jobs but nothing too much within a close range of our location. Monster.com had a few jobs, but again most of them were located in other states. The closest cities that I found were New York and Allegheny, PA. I would strongly recommend looking at Time Warner if you are looking to get into the media field.

Technology - What I will Need?

My field that I am pursuing is television and film production. To be successful in this field and to turn out a good product in this day and age you need to be able to utilize many different forms of hardware and software. The hardware that is required ranges from cameras to computers aswell as lighting equiptment. The hardware also includes microphones and other types of machinery. The software that is often listed in job descriptions includes Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro which are both high powered video editing software programs. Other types of software technology that would come in handy include Photoshop, After Effects, Audition, and Pro Tools. Photoshop is a program that allows you to do almost anything imaginable when it comes to editing photography. It also works great for making graphics for video. After Effects takes video editing to another level with the addition of animations and special effects. Audition and Pro Tools are used for editing audio.

Prototype - What Makes Me Tick?

1. I have experience in working with Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, Audition, and Photoshop.

2. I have some basic knowledge of animations in After Effects. I am proficient in photo editing on Photoshop. I have designed graphics for television using Photoshop. I work really well when it comes to editing video on Adobe Premier Pro. I have been using Premier for almost five years and have utilized it for television, school projects, and a documentary that I worked on for the BCRC Resource Center.

3. My favorite programs to work on are Premier and Photoshop. I love working with video and I am most comfortable using Premier for editing.

4. I am interested in film making and video editing as a career. I love to entertain and I love movies. I feel that it is a short period of time where you can escape from reality and the real world and let your emotions run wild. I also love comedy. I love to laugh. Nothing makes me happier. Music is another interest of mine. I like all different types of music. I can be really indecisive at times, but whatever sounds good to me at the present time works for me. I also enjoy the whole big city, bright light style experience. Hopefully, with hard work someday, ill have that luxury. I love technology and couldn't live without it. I am excited to see what the future holds for the industry.

5. I am passionate about earning what you have. I believe the best way to be rewarded is by working hard. I believe that you will appreciate things a lot more if you earned them.

6. I cant stand being taken advantage of. I try to believe that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, but in some cases there isn't and it frustrates me. I also don't like unfair judgement.

Site Critique:
The site is alright, but nothing to write home about. It filter to limit your searches. This makes it easier to look for a job in your field, but does not give you a whole lot of options. I would recommend using other kinds of job listings.

The Inception - What career I would like to pursue

My dream job would be producing for film. I have two main reasons behind this concept. The first being that I love to be creative and have a passion for bringing a vision or a dream to life. I think I would be good at it. I am very organized and full of ideas. Im always looking to get better at something. I dont believe in moving backwards. If I do a good job on one project for a client, I want to top it with the next project. Im always looking ahead and I crave success. I dont believe in failing.

The next main reason behind the idea of being a producer is that I love to entertain people. I always have enjoyed making other people happy. I dont believe that there is any better way than through the arts of entertainment. You hold the keys to the audiences emotions throughout the entire piece of film or show. There is nothing more exciting to me. That is why I would like to be a film producer.
