The next Olympics are still more than two years away, but NBC has already asked Joe Dziok '14 to be part of their coverage for the third time. Dziok, a senior music production and technology major at The Hartt School, worked in London during the summer of 2012 and just got back from the Sochi games. Dziok, who also plays jazz piano and credits his music with helping him get his network job, has this to say about his time in Sochi:
“I think that the University of Hartford has prepared me well to handle this AMAZING job opportunity. The hands-on experience I learned in the classroom, both with the recording and audio equipment and in my electrical engineering classes in CETA [College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture], have given me the skills to do what I spent two months working on in Russia. The critical thinking skills from my AUC [All-University Curriculum] courses and my other various courses have helped me to handle very stressful situations when a solution was needed very quickly. I think overall, I would never have been able to land this job if it wasn’t for my education at the University of Hartford.
