TV/Radio News Cataloguer/Researcher (Current Employee) –  Sydney, Australia26 December 2015
On a daily basis I either catalogue the news from the previous day across several ABC programs. Apart from the actual cataloguing details which need to be checked are metadata linking records to the their related vision, assuring standard vocabulary and metadata is correct and any foreign agency vision is noted as restricted as well as selecting ABC vision for archive which may not have been broadcast but is valuable for reuse.

I also provide research for journalists, e.g locating archival footage and ingesting the material either from tape or from digital archives. This role also includes selecting raw material for archive, quality check of both metadata and file names according to organisation wide standards, searching schedules for programs and their related metadata.

I used various databases to both catalogue and research including media asset management systems, ingesting vision from tape into digital format, archiving and restoring vision in our databases.
Good team work, life/work balance.
Old software systems makes for some frustration in storage space and workflows.

Work Experience Student (Former Employee) –  Ultimo NSW25 June 2019
During my work experience in the ABC, the employees there were very kind and the atmosphere was very productive. The workplace culture was consistent throughout the building and this included some viewings of their TV shows, merchandise and posters. My typical days included spending an hour or so exploring the different fields of the workplace, including some of the employees demonstrating the processes that occurred in their field. The most enjoyable part of the job was understanding how each detail of the workplace co-existed with the larger processes of development and production.
