Good Morning All,
I am in need of some career advice. My name is Russ Vander Horst, and I was
the recipient of the SBE Greenberg scholarship for 2009.
Because of any accident, my right shoulder rotator cuff was damaged and
required surgical repair back in March of this year. Healing is progressing,
but it will probably be another couple of months before my shoulder is back
to normal. After an appointment with my orthopedist, he believes it is in my
best interest to have surgery on my left shoulder as well, which will side
line me for another few months.
I am enrolled in World College working on my B.E.E.T., specializing in
broadcast engineering, and am doing very well with it; however I am a
believer that you can only learn so much from a book. I "need to get my
hands dirty" and do an internship, but this is not going to be able to be
done for at least another 6 months.
I would love to read the broadcast engineers handbook, but right now just
can't afford it.Also I have been downloading the FCC rules concerning TV,
and should have this done in the next couple of days, which I figure will at
least help me understand the guidelines I will eventually be working under.
What I am curious about is what other aspiring broadcast technicians would
do in my situation to promote their learning while unable to do an
internship (which I would do unpaid of course). Are there web sites that I
can review? Does anyone have a copy of the broadcast engineer's reference
book they would be willing to part with for a reasonable sum? Etc.
Any advice that anyone is willing to give would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance J
