If you want to be working in the TV or events industry then know straight away that you will have to work weekends. But this is part of the fun.
These posts give you an insight into volunteering that I have done and any talks/events that I have been to relevant to the industry. I know how important is it to further your knowledge and it is great as doing these things doesn’t feel like a task to me.
From doing various volunteering and going to events I have been able to network and obtain freelance work. I have been lucky enough to present at the Bournemouth Air Festival for the past two years and have been invited back this year for my third year. It is really amazing experience for a student who is just finishing their TV and broadcasting degree and it has developed my confidence massively.
