The BARMMAP workshop “How to Have a Successful Internship” held on 7-17-10 at Leo’s Pro Audio was filled with helpful tips and Q&A discussions on how to obtain an internship in the audio industry.
Interning is considered part of “paying your dues” once you leave a recording school and/or are fortunate enough to get accepted to a studio internship program. But, how do you best maximize your interning experience to lead you in the right direction for your audio career? This BARMMAP panel event hosted a variety of studio owners and young engineers who have either made the transition from intern to engineer or are currently in an internship program.
Attendees walked away from this panel with current, relevant feedback from engineers working in today’s recording industry to help reach next audio career goals.
