Advice For Students Following in Lily’s Footsteps
Take every opportunity to do as much work experience as possible. When I applied for my job I had more experience than most uni graduates – it wasn’t handed to me I spent all of my school holidays and many weekends working on different TV shows. At first I was just a spare pair of hands but as I did it more and continued to prove myself I started getting runner roles.
Even though it’s not exactly what I’m doing in my role now. When I was at Global Academy, we kept being told it’s so important to have things on your CV – but it’s so much more than that! In my job interview I was able to list over 10 TV shows that I had worked on in previous few months. Without a doubt- it was my work experience that got me to where I am because it showed my hardworking personality and my willingness to learn.
