Encourage others to join AV
The NSCA Ignite program is encouraging everyone to share their stories of how they got into AV. Why do you love what you do? What brought you into the audiovisual industry? When we were kids and people asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up, probably none of us said, “I want to make my mark in Communications Technology.”
Yet somehow, this is where we ended up – and now most of us never want to leave.
Because as weird, quirky, and somewhat nerdy as our industry is, we friggin’ love it! Speaking for myself, I dig how cool the technology is, and how great the people are. I love how it’s always changing, I’m always learning, and supportive we are of one another. Sure, it can get a little messy – but there’s so much positive energy in our business, I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.
That’s how I feel. Now I want to know how YOU feel! More important, career seekers need to know your experience, because from the outside looking in, they’re pretty clueless about the opportunities and awesomeness that await them. The best way to attract the talent we need is simply, to tell the truth about our own experience – because our enthusiasm doesn’t lie. So here’s what I’m asking you to do:
Make a selfie video and send it to NSCA’s Ignite team.
Shoot it on your phone. Make it short and sweet, with this simple structure:
- Give your name
- Tell where you work
- Tell what you do at your job
- And then simply tell us why you’re hopelessly hooked on this industry!
When your little video is ready please upload it.
Once we get your videos, they will edit them all together, throw in some cool music, then post it on Igniteyourcareer.org. The debut of the video will be at the Drunk Unkles concert Wednesday, June 12th, at 8:30 PM.
Your enthusiasm, energy and experience will take it from there..
