Young Apprentice Open to New Knowledge
« on: Nov 06, 2013, 11:32 pm »
Hello all! Janell here. I have been a member of SM Network for a while, but have been reading more than posting. So as long as I am here, I thought I might finally do an introduction.

I am originally from the outskirts of Mobile, AL (on the Gulf Coast), and I attended a year of college at University of South Alabama. i speant this summer working as a Stage Management Intern at Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery. Then, due to some unfortunate circumstance, I found myself unable to return to school this year. So I began looking for other options, and found a job as one of the full year Stage Management Apprentices at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, FL. I am hoping to return to school at some point, but may have to keep pushing forward in the professional world despite a lack of formal training.

I came to SM Network because it seems like a great resource [a fountain of knowledge, if you will,] for someone with my lack of experience and lack of training. I am here looking for advice, help, a bad joke, anything. Please feel free to email me with anything you've got.

The moment you decide to stop learning is the moment you become bad at your job.

Hi and welcome, Janell! I think you'll find all of the above. Lots of us have posted about practical experience being one of our most valuable resources- I think doing an apprenticeship is a great learning experience. (I know mine was.) Looking forward to having you on the boards!
