Fun atmosphere while learning
Student U Intern (Former Employee), East Lansing, MINovember 26, 2013
My co-workers were enthusiastic and friendly. My boss was very helpful and understanding. This was an internship but I felt like it was my job! I was getting paid while earning college credits and learning more about my major. A typical day would start by gathering the equipment (cameras, tv, cables and cords..etc) and transport them to the sporting – more... event, set up, record, and break down the equipment. We would go back to the office, feed the recordings back to the BTN headquarters in Chicago and then head home. A typical day would last around 6 to 10 hours. – less

Productive company working with camera equipment and broadcasting
Video manager (Current Employee), Columbus, OHAugust 7, 2013
Pros: eat lunch at the longer events that we are recording and take breaks when the athletes take breaks
Cons: outdoor camera men have to still record in all type of weather conditions
A normal day at this job is showing up to your crew call and setting up all the broadcasting equipment. Once the equipment is set up we call live to the Big Ten Headquarters in Chicago to confirm that we are set up and ready to stream the sporting event live. The hardest part of this job is setting up the graphic effects to be shown live on TV. But – more... the other jobs like camera man, score keeper, director, or counting in the announcers are the easy part of my job. I really do love this job because this is something I want to make my career. I love working with the camera equipment recording events that are taking place through the lens of the camera. I appreciate this work a lot because I went to school to work in the media industry and I am very experience with working with video camera equipment. – less

Big Ten Student U Productions (Current Employee), Bloomington, INMay 20, 2013
Overall, I would describe my time with the Big Ten Student U program as a success. Not only did I learn a lot about the behind the scenes duties of producing television sporting events, I was able to gain experience broadcasting sporting events for television.

Fast-paced atmosphere in a fun environment
Technical Director, Camera Operator (Former Employee), Bloomington, INMay 10, 2012
Pros: free food
A normal production would last 6 hours at most, with setting up equipment and checking in with the headquarters in Chicago to time when the production would go live to the web. I learned a lot of technical aspects of a production, including wiring, routing, the technical board and the production feed.
