Radio Personality (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 2, 2016

Dj On Air Radio Personality (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 7, 2015
Working for the number one urban station HOT97 in its prime as a dj on air radio personality for 15 years was truly an awesome experience! I learned of wealth of skills during my time there! Everything from sharpening my people skills to understanding the business of music on a global scale. The wealth of knowledge obtained during my employment at Emmis is truly unmatched my any other job opportunity I was fortunate to have. My co-workers were also my competition at times which made for interesting in office politics, but ultimately we functioned as a tight unit. The most enjoyable part of the job was the life time of experiences I got from having intimate access to the music industry. The hardest part of the job is the politics and long hours.
promotional items, and all access at events like summer jam
Assistant Producer/Editor/Videographer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 20, 2015
Each day was filled with various artist, celebrities, and occasionally politicians being interview. I learned the production costs to run a full time radio station, traffic logs, ad revenue. The hardest part of my job were last minute deadlines that were changed for a client. The most enjoyable part was coming into a department where everyone supported your progress.
Promotions/Marketing/Programming (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 27, 2014
BEST JOB EVER 98.7KISSFM was family oriented. We Had fun doing our job helping people bringing awareness to the TriState. Everyone knew who 98.7KissFm was along with the Team & On-Air Personalities. We worked together. It was more than a job, it was a career and we were family. The hardest part of the job was going home and not returning when the Radio Station was sold to another company. The Most enjoyable part of the job was growing as a Host/MC & DJ. Being able to make the listeners laugh and giving away prizes. Making people happy is the best gift ever for me.
Promotions Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 5, 2012
When you interview for this job, they tell you right off the bat that the job is designed to help you move forward in your career, and to always be cultivating relationships with clients and co-workers.
I took this to heart, and worked very hard to always run the most efficient, exciting events, and always made sure to have a good rapport with those I was working for and with.
Our managers were fantastic, and the office ran successfully because of it. We were all trained well, and it showed in how we turned around and managed our interns.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and essentially helped me find my next job.

Traffic Department Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 11, 2013
Working at a computer and being able to walk around the station (hot97) was very exciting. I felt like an important asset to the company an =d what was being played on the air. I learned how to use Microsoft Excell and other radio production software. My co workers were extremely helpful in helping me learn more about the position and how to run it. The hardest part was learning everything at first because one mistake could cause loss of money and worse, so it was very nerve racking. The most enjoyable part was the knowledge learned and the people i met and connected with. As well as the free tea making machine!
cool laid back but professional setting, wealth of information and knowledge, wonderful co workers, free tea making machine, organic vending machine
