Attention, female and minority college seniors with an eye on a broadcasting career: Why not bag those final bacchanalian spring break festivities at the beach and focus on your future instead?
The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation is hosting the Second Annual Broadcast Technology and Engineering Internship Program for women and people of color on April 12–15 in Las Vegas.
NABEF says it is looking for individuals interested in working with digital radio and video, computer technology, HD Radio or HDTV.
Ten college seniors and recent college graduates will be selected to participate. They will attend NAB2008, participate in a one-day session, tour the exhibit floor and have the chance to become a Certified Broadcast Technologist by taking the Society of Broadcast Engineers exam.
The selected participants will be provided with an eight-week paid internship in engineering and technology at a radio or television station during the summer of 2008. NABEF says the program is designed to reinforce diversity efforts by increasing the number of women and people of color entering broadcast engineering.
