Nearly every job in television and radio is highly sought after. Even if you have the best qualifications from the best university, you still have to convince people of your unique talent. The same rule applies if you don't have a list of initials after your name but do have talent and determination: you still have to persuade people to give you and your talent a chance. This book is a one-stop resource, providing the platform from which to launch a successful career. It explains exactly what a prospective employee needs to know: how the media industries work, what range of jobs is available and what each job entails, and what you need to do to land the job of your choice.
