Work condition

DJs usually perform on weekend nights, in different environments, except those who work on the radio. However, their performance requires preliminary preparation for the music they’ll be playing, so their work schedule is not just the time they perform. Some DJs do this only as a hobby and at the same time have some other job.

Work tools

DJs use laptops, mixers, turntables, cd players, records, and headphones. They also use software such as Traktor and Serato. The software has controllers that connect the program to the device.

Necessary education and training

DJs differ from each other, depending on their genre of music. Some are simply song selectors, some mix different music and effects, while others are original producers which means they create the music they play. Usually, it is talent, dedication, and experience that enable entry into this occupation and further advancement.
