Videography and Communications

Karen Loke; Interviewer: Alex

Videography and Media (Real Media)

The Communications Division manages internal and external communication and marketing. Their award-winning projects include the Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine, PBS television series, Passport to Texas radio series, print and video news releases, web development and newsletters. Its nationally-recognized graphics group, a 100,000-member Texas Conservation Passport Program and a consumer research group help provide Texans with the information they want and need to enjoy and conserve the outdoors.

Careers in communications include writers, artists, video producers, marketing, and information specialists. Since this division serves all facets of the department, frequent travel and nonstandard working hours are often required. Excellent communications skills are, of course, a must.
