I apologize for this cliched question - but HOW does someone make the transition to working in the entertainment industry? I’m currently based in DC and am stuck for another year. I’m open to any and all opportunities. If anyone has any insight or places to check out in the meantime in the dc area, I would be eternally grateful. Anyone willing to connect would be 10/10

OP - your question is very broad...it may be helpful to get your question answered if you were more specific about what you are interested in doing and what your skill set is.
“Working in the entertainment industry” can mean literally anything - there are multiple career tracks from acting to cinematography to catering to set design to legal to writing... the list is long.

Hey - thanks so much for your perspective. I truly truly appreciate it. Hope you have a wonderful new year

Also check out film & theater programs at local community colleges. I have a family member who got some fantastic experience writing scripts, and on set experience shooting a few short films. There are some good, reasonable programs in the oddest of places if you look.

Hi all, just wondering about graduate opportunities in Toronto. I’m currently doing an undergrad degree at a University of London and will be graduating June 2023. I’m also a Canadian citizen so no issues around ability to work.

Just wondering if you all have tips on the best way to break into the market as a graduate? Finding it a little tough as a UK student trying to find opportunities in Toronto when there is on-campus recruiting that I cant attend.

Any tips would be massively appreciated!

I finally took my decision. I am graduated in electromechanical engineering, experienced in ecommerce and sales. I have an idea for a saas staurtup company but i needed someone to code. I didn't know anyone who i can trust for the job, so i stopped my current work and decided to learn coding myself (starting from the scratch) . If it doesn't happen now, it woukd never happen.

Has anyone ever posted a general marketing position? We have an open position on our marketing team but we are unsure what type of position to offer. We have a wide variety of needs but don’t necessarily need to have this future person have all these skills. For example we need someone with great copywriting skills and also need someone who is great at digital marketing. This person doesn’t necessarily need to have both skills but if they did great, but if only one, great too.

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!
