Graduating Class of 2017
Jason is a 2016 Recording Arts graduate who recently secured a full-time position as an AV Tech at Compass Group. Jason is also currently an AV Tech/DJ at The DJ Firm and a Crew Member at Chicago Stagehand. We asked Jason a few questions and here's what he had to say!
What do you like most about working at The DJ Firm, Chicago Stagehand and now Compas Group?
Both jobs, The DJ Firm and Chicago Stagehand, are flexible and you get to say yes or no to whatever jobs they offer you. With Chicago Stagehand it's really great to meet other crew members and learn more from them and network to learn the Audio Visual field better. The DJ Firm Company is small AV tech work but it's another passion I do as a DJ myself.
Thanks to both these jobs is why I got hired at Compass Group as a full-time AV Tech to handle all of their press conferences and meetings!
What advice do you have for TFC candidates currently and actively job searching?
After graduating, keep an open mind to trying anything because it does not hurt to learn extra skill sets for certain jobs. Sometimes your career mindset will change especially within the audio industry.
How did your experience at TFC help you secure your current role?
My experience through the Recording Arts program helped me realize to not stick to one skill set. It does not hurt to learn everything they teach you from location audio, live sound, sound design, or recording engineering. This contributed to securing my current position.
What would you look for if you were in the position to hire new graduates from TFC?
Experience and the skill sets candidates have besides what they specialized in.
What was your favorite thing about TFC?
My favorite was working with Paul Rodgers doing foley for a full feature film from a filming company. This project was outside of class and I was lucky enough to get chosen by Paul along with two other students to work on a real project like this.
Name one thing that made you choose TFC over other colleges?
Learning hands-on was key for me to understand how things work when I studied Recording Arts. But the most important part of TFC was the networking they had through their Career Services Department and through the teachers as well.
If you had to do it all over again, what would you do differently?
Well, I wish I did an Internship at a post-production studio during the school year, or on summer break. Other than that, nothing really.
