This is one area that most people have considered working in at some point or another – even if it’s just while watch X Factor and thinking, ‘I could do so much better!’ Even if treading the boards isn’t for you, there are a variety of ‘back office’ roles in broadcast media that are open to graduates. Screenwriters, script editors, producers and animators all play a vital role in the finished media product.
Because the media is seen as a glamorous destination for graduates, it’s very competitive and work experience is essential. Getting involved in student media or your local radio is a great start and shows that you have the necessary enthusiasm and dedication.
Being such a broad industry, working conditions and salaries are hugely variable – after all, everyone from a runner on a TV set to a movie star is technically ‘working in the media’. Many people get their first job as a runner on a TV set, doing odd jobs for the producers and crew, so this is the one of the most likely ways for graduates to enter the media industry.
