Audio Visual Technician (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 19, 2013
Coordinating event logistics with science team and special events manager. Interface with administrative staff to ascertain event technical details. I have learned to work with an interpretation system for the first time. The staff, for the most part, is fairly elusive. The hardest part of the job is last-minute detail changes which affects my planned execution.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
personalities
