PowerCord 2
You Should have been to the PowerCord2 Jam 
On Tuesday, March 22

What’s a PowerCord?

A musical chord formed by a root note, its fifth, and its octave. Among the easiest types of chords to play on the guitar, due to an easily shiftable fingering position, and the power chord's ability to "fit" over both major and minor melodies. Vital to heavy metal and punk music. Power chords are a key element of many styles of rock and heavy metal music.

What is PowerCord2 Jam?

We hear it all the time.
"I'm looking for my first job in the industry, but employers all seem to want experience and I don't have any. What do I do?"
We've got one word for you - volunteerVolunteering is the best way to get the experience you need to score a great job. These opportunities are both fun and will show potential employers that you're responsible.

Want some evidence? Well, over half of the graduate recruiters that took part in a recent research study by Highfliers said that, "graduates who have had no previous work experience at all are unlikely to be successful during the selection process and have little or no chance of receiving a job offer."
Doing work experience shows passion and interest. Evidence that you have done work experience shows the employer that you are motivated to get into a chosen career and that you’ve done your homework.

On the Tuesday of week 11 of the Winter Quarter from 2 pm to 4 pm, The Art Institute of Las Vegas had the second in a series of PowerCord Concerts. PowerCord2 Jam in the Park(ing lot) was a FREE student concert with the focus on presenting the concert and learning those skills - not actually creating something for the audience.

Student volunteers set up, presented, recorded and cleaned up a professionally managed opportunity that could eventually be used on resume and job interview opportunities.

The Concert was presented by Nik Hotchkis’ Audio Students and produced by Frank Pinto, while being hosted by student members of the Fashion Club. There were bands and 2 urban vocalists performing to backing tracks. A DJ performed changeovers, house music, and played backing tracks.

ALL volunteers got a PowerCord Bracelet AND get priority access to the craft table – free food and drink – provided by the school and sourced at Sprouts Fresh Market. All others got access to the craft table after the volunteers.
