Am I the Right Person?
When I registered for the spring semester this year, I had concerns about my dream, to be exact, what kind of job I should look for in the near future. My dream job has changed several times through my life but I have to stop wandering and make a life decision. Of course the most significant part is how much I can be grateful and be fond of working in that area. There are other factors, however, to be thought such as personalities, major, working experiences and I have concluded that considering all the factors synthetically, a broadcast producer is my dream job. It's still doubtful if I'm qualified to say that I fit perfectly with the work of producing, though I believe my passion and interest suits enough to be one.
First of all, since I was a very young girl, I have always dreamed of performing on a stage and have my name credited. If I think back now, it meant that I hoped to be noticed and remembered from other people that I've never met before. That uncompleted dream has now turned into making creative contents so that I can bequeath my work and name in next generations. I have thought that the most adequate job to achieve my dream is to be a producer directing and filming a program. Making programs is all about creating new interesting contents, thus it matches with my wishes and I feel like I would have a great ardor towards fields of producing.
I also thought that my major is one of the strongest points that presents I have a qualification to be a producer. I majored in Media Communication department, specifically the journalism area. Although major is not considered as the most important thing to apply for a certain job but it's definitely helpful if you know some academic knowledge regarding to that field. From the past four years of learning, I believe that I understood the basic theories and procedures of how mass communication works in the fields of media. Therefore, working as a producer will be an opportunity for me to actually develop all of my academic knowledge and practice in reality.
But one small problem is that the most important qualifications of a producer are being responsible and have a powerful leadership and I have lack of those abilities. A producer is in the position where it needs a leadership and responsibility to direct and navigate the whole program team. In addition, producer's work load is known to be massive and it's just unimaginable to follow daily routines with regularity. All these facts considered, I cannot guarantee that I can handle all those works proficiently with huge responsibilities behind my back. I guess the fear from not knowing and experiencing the field is the biggest obstacle for me to be a producer.
In conclusion, my dream job at this moment is a broadcast producer, both producing and directing a program. I can feel myself is ready to devote my life in the broadcast field and my long time dream and major shows that I'm qualified. However, my internal desire is not enough to be a competent producer. In order to be the best in the field, I should raise my confidence and abilities needed in producer working conditions. Although producer recruiting is very rare and prefer experienced people, I'll give it a try to achieve my goal. If I put my time and efforts on work that I can enjoy then success will follow automatically.
