CRAS administrator Kirt Hamm, speaking to Sports Video Group, highlighted the groups reasoning not only for attending the convention, but for reaching out to high end studios while in visiting the city.
"We sent members of our staff to New York to connect with and develop ongoing and new relationships with manufacturers at the AES Show as well as with recording studio managers and employed CRAS graduates in order to help place our students in their mandatory internships prior to graduation, and then open potential graduate job placement opportunities."
Rachel Ludeman, the Employment Coordinator for CRAS, expanded on the benefits of the trip.
“This trip was inspiring and fruitful. We’ve already sent candidates to DNR Studios, Live X Studios, Penthouse Recording NYC, Eastside Sound and Adam Audio, and the outcome looks great. There is opportunity in New York’s pro audio community as long as you’re adaptable and willing to work hard for it. CRAS is excited and honored to send some of our finest engineers to these facilities, and appreciate all the new relationships we have made.”
