Carolina Week Testimonial: Carolina Week was what I lived and breathed each day of my junior and senior years in college. My biggest regret is that I didn’t get into it sooner. This organization was the only reason I have a job right now. As a student who was responsible for paying tuition, I had no time for an internship. However, through Carolina Week I was able to build a resume tape and practice calling a show as a Director. The awards that Carolina Week won while I was the Director will always be included on my resume, because they indicate the strength of the program from which I came.

If you are interested in working the TV News, Carolina Week is the only place where Production and News aren’t separate. It’s the only place that allows you to package a story, and turn around to Technical Direct a newscast. It’s where you learn what a team is, so you can teach your next organization that TV News is all about teamwork.
