In the second half of his original post, Alberto Vargas, a Spring 2012 intern and a Music Production & Engineering / Contemporary Writing and Production Major tells us what he learned from his internship experience and time at Mix One Studios, a recording studio in Boston specializing in voice-overs as well as post-production for film and television.
In the beginning of my internship, I set up a couple of goals I wanted to achieve. I wanted to have the opportunity to work in a professional environment, be able to use the equipment and be a part of the projects and sessions. Those goals came true. I only wish I could have gained more experience in the company and have been able to earn the trust to conduct a session of my own. But I also realized that with the little time I was there, it was not possible.
This internship definitely gave me great experience for my career and it will help me further develop my career and goals. I learned the value of being professional and patient with clients, to have a great work ethic and know it is about the team and not just yourself, and, most importantly, to not be scared to take risks. Obviously know when is the proper time to do so, but nonetheless to take it. I learned to believe in my talent and to know that I have a lot to offer. I can’t say enough how important this is.
