"We’re not all going to be Spike Stent or Mandy Parnell"... Getting a job where you still get to go and play in studios
A trip down memory lane as Jim Motley shares his journey through the industry after failing to be either a pop star or record producer. In the presentation we look at the different types of careers that are available with manufacturers of audio equipment, with some examples of different people’s paths to getting a job at SSL. There will also be an employer’s-eye view on how to get noticed when applying for jobs and some great CV advice and tips.
Jim is Senior Vice President of International Sales at SSL and has worked a most levels of the supply chain in the industry, from shop-floor in a music store to corner office in leafy Oxford. He’s affectionately known as the “company performing seal” because of his willingness to do YouTube product videos in exchange for fresh fish, and is active in a number of the online forums under the not-so-secret pseudonym Jim@SSL.
