By nature, Media Film & TV is not the most stable vocation and a lot of the work could be on a part time basis or even seasonal. In the Film & TV sectors specifically, we would advise getting your foot in the door and climb the ladder from there. This might mean that you apply and work a job that you are overqualified for but it’s the best way to gain experience. It is also typical to see companies hire temporary or contract workers to come in for specific multi-media projects when a company needs expertise for projects but do not have enough projects to hire full-time at the company. This is also a great way to experience a lot of different companies working on a wide range of projects until you find certain projects or a company that is a great fit for you.
