Question 59: Question: How do you know who to contact about getting a job when the job you want is not posted on any website?

I wonder how you found out about a job that isn’t posted on a site. Whoever gave you the lead is where I would start.
Let me rephrase this question to help a larger scope of people.
How do you pursue a job that you want, when there’s currently no opening?
You create relationships with as many people on the show/project/company as you possibly can. This way when a job does open, you’re top of mind.

1.    Create a target list of 10 shows/projects/companies

2.    Contact 1-5 people per show/project/company as a mentor

3.    Continue to build and deepen the relationships
