Leeds, United Kingdom
Are you looking to find your first job after finishing your university degree or an internship in Film, TV or commercial production for the Summer and struggling to know where to find those opportunities?
Have you been sending off what seems like hundreds of Cvs to hundreds of production companies and not even getting a reply?
This bitesize workshop will help you focus yourself and your search in finding more opportunities to help you secure that first work experience placement or job.

The session will cover:
* Helping you decide just what job you are looking for in the industry and how you can best utilise your existing skills.
