Last week, on Sept. 9, students and faculty from RCC Institute of Technology’s Electronics Engineering Programs, joined Director of Career Services, Catherine Boni on a tour of The Weather Network/ Pelmorex Media Inc. Broadcast Studios. Catherine shared the details in this guest blog post.
We received a warm welcome from the minute we walked in the door of The Weather Network/ Pelmorex Media Inc. Broadcast Studios and the visit proved to be both informative and fun, simply; worth every minute!
The day began with a presentation which included meeting the Management Team and hearing about the History of Pelmorex Media Inc.
We were then given a tour of their studios. They allowed us to play in front of the green screen and watch a live broadcast. During our tour, we had the pleasure of meeting Suzanne Leonard, Broadcaster and were thrilled to be able to watch her in action! She has such a warm personality on and off the Air, she is truly a natural!
We were honoured to meet the following Management Team….
It was impressive to receive a presentation from the Management Team and to hear about how they started their careers as a Shooter, Camera Person, Editor, and in the IT, Electronics Departments.
We talked about various job opportunities at Pelmorex and how our students can begin to build their careers after graduating. There are many jobs open to graduates of RCCIT’s Electronics Programs, like a Broadcast Technician.
The Broadcast Technician is responsible for the maintenance and installation of broadcast equipment and they also provide technical assistance to The Weather Network television department.
The HR Team are interested in receiving resumes from our Electronics Engineering graduates, so I encourage you to explore this as an option after you graduate.
