Are you on the hunt for a job?
Have you ever dreamed about being behind the mic and talking to thousands over the radio? Or maybe you’d be perfect for producing the commercials that local advertisers rely on to bring in new customers.
From on-air and production to promotions, traffic and sales, come to the NHAB 2012 Job Fair on April 25 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Anselm College in Manchester.
You can talk with hiring personnel from many New Hampshire television and radio stations about all the internship and job opportunities available! Be sure to bring your resume! WTSN-AM and WBYY-FM will be on hand to answer your questions on job opportunities.
AAJA member Paul Niwa of Emerson College will be a panelist at this discussion at MIT.
MIT will hold a panel discussion of violence against racial minorities in the US. Panelists will compare the Trayvon Martin incident and the death of Jicun Wu, owner of a Chinese takeout in Philadelphia, as instances of extreme violence against the black and Asian American communities. Martin was killed in Florida in February 2012, Wu died in Pennsylvania in March 2012: what does this say about the state of race relations in US society today?
