It would be a very large task to list every single telecom job available, but there are some obvious and not so obvious examples I can mention. Many large TV Broadcasting stations have telecom positions available. This type of job would require switchboard operating and managing of the video feed. Positions will vary on job requirements and tasks. Another possible employment opportunity is within computer software companies. For example, Apple Inc. has a need for telecom positions with their recent release of the iPhone and the iPod. Cell phone companies and large organizations have a high demand for telecom positions.
A great way to find a telecom position that fits for you is through an online job search service. Creating a digital resume and placing it through a job search site will give a larger amount of companies the opportunity to see it. This will also let you explore companies at a closer level than a traditional job search would. Online job searches will also eliminate any jobs that you aren’t interested in. Having set criteria for your future career is important. If there are certain benefits that you want or a level of pay then you need be sure to identify and clearly state these concerns while in the searching process. It is important to remember that the job should cater to you as well as you being right for the job. If you are in a job or career that you don’t enjoy your job performance will be low and will reflect poorly on you and your employer.
The last step when searching for a telecom job or any job is to experience the job first hand. Find an internship or a job shadowing opportunity within the focused field of telecom that interests you. Ask questions and takes notes through out the experience. Make sure that you are being as actively involved as you can be. This will also boost your resume and show future employers that you have a genuine interest that you’ll enjoy the work you’ll be doing. Before making any career decision it is always a good idea to talk to a career counselor or an employment office. They can help you make important career decisions and provide further information about the career path you’ve chosen.
