New job day!
« on: November 09, 2011, 11:30:22 AM »
I didn't last as long in Canada as I'd hoped but coming back to England hasn't been bad really. I've just landed a job in a TV studio :D It's Ideal World shopping channel so not exactly high end but I'm not complaining! Job is pretty much all the fun stuff we did at uni - rigging up studios, mic'ing presenters up and plugging everything into the wall boxes, camera op, working on the sound desks/gram op and that sort of thing. I'm pretty excited to start in a week.

Already planning the next guitar upgrades :lol: My 2 LPs need the 50s rewiring with new parts and I could do with some BKPs for the SG!

Cheers guys, looking forward to working in a proper studio :) I had a tour in my interview, looks pretty nice! I'm the 5th from my course/year at uni to get a job there as well, they must love DMU students haha

That's awesome news, many congratulations. Sounds like a good fit for your skills (if I remember right) and it'll be a great springboard into future opportunities I'm sure.
