Pros: work with professionals, networking, friendships, flexible schedule
Cons: stressful at times, equipment problems from time to time
Being a student and part-time worker or 'Multimedia Student Technician' is an interesting position to be in. Instead of seeing events and being a part of it, you get to go behind the scenes, set the event up, meet amazing people. We worked with comedians, magicians, musicians/bands/, speakers, and many other people. The hardest part of the job is knowing which equipment is necessary for an event and making sure none of the equipment you are using goes wrong. Overall, it has been fun working as a 'Student Tech' for Embry-Riddle.
