30-minute one-to-one sessions for people in the early stages of a media career.
It’s often your first or second job that are the most difficult to find, and competition can be extremely fierce. So it’s important to apply for the right jobs and internships, and to send a CV and covering letter that give the best impression.
Bring your CV and a sample covering letter, plus a short showreel if you have one. Before the session, research the type of job you’re looking for and possible employers.
Somerset Film trustee Andrew Buchanan has given many newcomers to the media industry their first job. His knowledge of what employers are looking for – and what they don’t like – comes from four decades working in the film and television industry.
