Competition for jobs in television is at an all-time high. If you want to get a job in the industry you will need to go the right way about it. A crucial step to getting your foot on the first rung of the ladder is finding out exactly what it is that you want to do. Avoid the 'I want to work in television, and I'll do anything approach'; show that you know what you want; demonstrate your understanding of, and enthusiasm for, the job; and stand out from the crowd. That is where this book will help. It covers: what each job entails and which ones will be most suited to you, the benefits of embarking on media-related courses, how to get work experience and make the most of it, how to write a good CV and shine at the interview, and how to get ahead - and stay ahead - on the job. A chapter entitled 'The Story of a Shoot' will give you an insight into the real, day-to-day workings of the industry. The book is backed-up by quotes from managers, personnel people and top film-makers throughout. CONTENTS: Part I - WELCOME TO TELEVISION 1. The story of a shoot 2. Which job is best for you?
