Q&A with Gary James, National Placement Director at Ohio / Illinois Centers for Broadcasting
Q: If you could give one piece of advice for a student graduating this month, what would it be?
A: Be versatile with passion. Someone told me when I was about to graduate from school, "Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life." Passion for your career is so important because it will give you the drive and determination you need to succeed. Passion will come out in your creativity and all of your work. As technology is changing every day, you need to be versatile. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to get a foot in the door and build your career from that point. As you are building your career, you will be asked to do things you never thought would be in your job description, but as Radio, TV and the Internet, converge you have to be able to provide your services on multiple platforms.

Q&A with Bruce Borowsky, Co-Founder of Boulder Digital Arts
Q: Are there certain industry trends we should be on the look-out for regarding education or training?
A: The biggest trend we are seeing today is that of people needing to be trained in doing everything themselves; i.e. working as a one-man band. You will be much more marketable if you can perform many duties, making it cost-effective for those that want to hire you.

Green Production Tip of the Month
What did you do with your old laptop battery and cell phone the last time you got a new one? Or the dead batteries you took out of your camera?
We hope you joined thousands of others and put them in your buildingâ€™s e-waste recycling bin. Each year, Americans go through 2.25 million tons of TVs, cell phones and computer electronics and over 3 billion dry-cell batteries.
What are you doing on your set to help go green? We want to hear about it!
