    I've been covering preps/local features for seven months. I have tons of game stories but I also shoot video and photos for our Web site. Any potential out there??

    Worked at a TV station once... hated it...all douche bags...

    I would imagine it has some weight. (Not the douche bags, the experience)

    Any cool gigs??

    I'm going to assume this is a serious post, though it lacks specifics to the point that it is difficult to distill what Mr. Mojo is asking.

    Mojo, seven months experience isn't much, and since you are writing, shooting, recording and posting I'll take a wild guess that you work for a weekly/alt-weekly. As for the TV station experience, the value depends on what you did during your stay. Segment producer? Maybe. Intern? Not so much.

    There are plenty of cool jobs out there. Just keep in mind that the ability to post video and photos on a Web site isn't a rare skill anymore. With today's Web tools, almost anyone can shoot, record, edit and post with very little training. As with writing, those that get the best jobs show that extra ability to not only produce, but produce greatness frequently and on tight deadline.

    This isn't meant to discourage you. But the path to success on the multimedia side is the same as anywhere else - either bust your hump, or come up with the great ideas that generate readership/traffic/cash.

    Hope this helps.
