Officials in Effingham County say that plans for the Medient Studio complex are on track, and it won't be long before ground is broken and construction starts.

Lots of different jobs will come with the new studios.  The key is to be prepared as soon as the doors open.
And those jobs aren't just for directing and acting.  there's a lot of service work that will also be needed to get the complex up and running, and then keep it going.

The director of Effingham County's Industrial Development Authority John A. Henry

 says there's a long list of positions to fill.

"Potential within the next couple of years -- there's cleaning and maintenance, 36 workers. Security, 31 workers. Cafeteria workers - 45. Secretarial and assistants, 24 positions. 12 receptionist positions."

If you think you might be interested in one of the service jobs at the studio, you'll want to work on getting your resume' together to reflect your experience.  If you're interested in training in theater or television, you can contact Savannah State University, Armstrong Atlantic State, or Savannah College of Art and Design.  We'll keep you updated on the studio's progress.
