I'm beyond happy to report that finally, after over 10 years of searching (and doing unpaid internships!) I have secured a paying media job!
It's a small business that does web development webcasts, DVDs, CD ROMs and will soon be branching out to podcasting. I am appropriately excited to be trained (trained!) on digital editing software. And, well...I have a CD of my own voiceover work at the ready if they ever need someone to voice their podcasts!
The guys I'm working for seem really cool and laid back. I start on Friday, and while I'm a little nervous of course, I'm mostly just thrilled for someone finally giving me an opportunity.
