Maija, Sound Technology
Maija started her internship in the sound technology department in January 2022. In her opinion, the best thing about the internship has been to meet many professionals who have accumulated tips and experiences on working methods and practices in the field.
“My career in the event industry began in 2016 as a helping hand at festivals as well as other major events. After high school, I spent one year as an AV technician at Tampere Hall, after which I was selected to Metropolia’s Event and Theatre Technology Bachelor’s Degree program. I applied here for an internship, as I had already done some jobs as a freelancer and felt the company was a good place for an internship.
During my internship, I have been able to do a variety of work in the warehouse, such as packing and shelving gigs, cleaning and maintenance procedures, and building equipment racks. In addition, in events I have done miking, audio mixing, and in some smaller events I have worked independently from the equipment list planning to mixing of the event. During the internship I have learned for example problem solving skills. Everything can be figured out by asking and discussing with co-workers and at the same time you can learn something new.”
