The most common way for people to find work in this industry, especially for those just breaking in, is to troll the popular job websites like realitystaff, media-match, mandy and craigslist.Â These websites can be great, however,Â you have to think about how many people are applying to these same positions.Â With hundreds of people applying your resume can easily be lost in the shuffle.
With this thought in mind,Â I decided to take a different approach to my daily job search.Â I thought that if I send of my resume to companies that aren’t hiring right now, that maybe they would think of me in the future.
So I googled several production companies and started sending my cover letter and resume to them.Â A few days later, I got an email response back asking me to come into their office for an interview (go me!).
The moral of this story is to break up your normal job website routine.Â Try contacting companies directly to see if they are hiring, or hiring in the future.Â You never know what may turn up from your efforts.
Happy job hunting!
