For example, DJs who work for radio stations (Radio DJs) select and play records, but they also talk and entertain listeners. DJs can also work in clubs (Club DJs), there they do not only choose music and songs, but they combine them to create different sounds. There are the mobile DJs too; they work in events as weddings or birthdays.
There is not a DJ school, however a communication, broadcasting or journalist degree in your Disc Jockey Resume will help, especially for Radio DJs. Clubs DJs or mobile DJs will have another DJ as mentor and study under them.
