CV and Networking Workshop
Is your CV being sent out with little or no response? Are you unsure who to send it to and when?
Our afternoon CV and Networking Workshop will check that your CV is written in the correct film industry format and that it is reaching the right people at the right time. We’ll also look at how to network effectively and when to follow up with people you have talked to. These are purposefully small groups of up to 6 people so that we can focus on each individual approach to industry.
One afternoon can make a huge difference in understanding how to present yourself and reach the people you need. During this session we will look at:
- What to include in an industry CV and what to leave out
- Who to contact, how and when to do it and how to follow up
Cost is £30+vat. Spaces are limited so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
As always, this is also a good opportunity to network within a small group.
