Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 793:Which industry (film, television, commercial) would you say is easiest to get work in?
They are all equally as easy and as difficult to get in to. Did that sound like Yoda? No, I'm not trying to do a Jedi mindtrick on you. The business tools and strategies for breaking into each area, are the same. The people and companies you target are different.
The quantity and quality of your business relationships in each area will determine your fastest path to work. Here's how to determine where you're starting out:
1. Make 3 lists, one for each area
2. On each list, write down who you know
3. Next to each person write a number 1-5 based on how well you know them
4. Circle in green, each person who can potentially hire you
If you don't know anyone and you're starting from scratch, decide which area you are most passionate about and target people who work in that area.
