AV position with Durham Public Schools

When I was doing career exploration, I never imagined that a school system would have anything media related. There are some school systems that hire people with TV experience to teach proudction or radio. Many school systems have their own TV networks. After the hectic schedule of live TV, this is a great position for a veteran. A schedule with no weekends and holidays off? These hours are basically unheard of in TV. If you would like to try your hand at a positon in the school system, Durham Public Schools is hiring. Good Luck!
