Have to admit NBC is candid on what it takes to get a broadcasting job
NBC IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER
Three major factors make the broadcasting industry different
from most others when discussing how to enter it:
* The industry is small, and with downsizing, employment
opportunities do not occur very often. Although there may be
increasing opportunities in cable, the internet-related news
business, and the information superhighway.
* Most jobs require specific skills or experience. Also, NBC is at
the top of the industry. This is not usually the place to start
your career, and an entry level position is very rare. Some
positions, such as on-air talent, require years of experience in
small markets before moving to a big city.
* The competition for any openings that do occur is intense, with
most jobs going to people already in the Company who are promoted
With these factors in mind, anyone interested in broadcasting
will learn that the careers it offers are challenging and exciting.
The fact that they are more difficult to gain than most is a
reflection of their desirability.
Job opportunities in broadcasting can be divided into two
broad categories: Production and Administration. The greatest number
of jobs that can be filled by people not already in the industry are
in administration. Some NBC locations have more Production functions
NBC has its corporate headquarters in New York City, and
Owned & Operated television stations in New York (NY), Burbank (CA),
Chicago (IL), Philadelphia (PA), Washington (DC), Miami (FL), San
Diego (CA), Columbus (OH),New Britian (CT), Cranston (RI), Raleigh
(NC), and Birmingham (AL). NBC Cable is headquartered in Ft. Lee NJ and the
News Channel in Charlotte NC.
