This summer, I am relocating to a new city and looking for a new job in the entertainment industry. I have been in the industry for 3+ years and can’t believe how much I have learned about the business. It is a great job that I am learning every day, I just need a new challenge. There are a lot of great entertainment industry positions to choose from. I am looking for jobs with large productions for a variety of shows and features.
There are many entertainment industry jobs that are not as well-known, but all of them pay incredibly well. Some are just full time jobs where you work with an agency/broadcasting company for a fixed salary that you don’t have to put in your own pocket and others are full time jobs that are for just a few years and are paid a lot more.
Entertainment industry jobs vary in pay, but they have one thing in common- they are often more than a paycheck away from the life you want to live. Many positions offer you a ton of money to do whatever you want, and some even pay you an hourly rate. Entertainment industry jobs are usually what I consider “hard skills” jobs because they require you to be able to think at a higher level and have a lot of technical knowledge.
Marketing jobs are great because they are often a “must have” in today’s economy. But do they actually make you money? I’m not sure. In fact, I have a friend who was never able to get a job in the entertainment industry because his work experience was so poor he couldn’t keep up. But he eventually found a job in marketing, and they paid well.
I can relate to this. I spent a lot of time at my job as a junior designer and was able to get a job as a creative director/producer on a TV show. In the early 2000s the TV industry was in bad shape. So bad that just about every single show failed. So my friend wasnt able to find a job in TV, but had a number of job offers. He knew he wasnt going to become a producer again.
But like many companies, he started over. He created his own company, and then was able to land a job in marketing. I would say that he was able to get a better job, but not a better job in marketing. He had one of the most successful and lucrative marketing jobs that I have ever seen.
This may sound like a job that would be fun, but it isn’t. Television shows are still shows. They don’t change, they don’t grow, they don’t evolve. They are just shows. Television shows that are still shows are like the Titanic, or the Starship Enterprise. They are still going to fail, but they are going to fail in a way that is more predictable than the Titanic or Enterprise.
This is why it is so important to talk to people in the entertainment industry. They are the ones who know how television shows are going to turn out. This is why the executives in the entertainment industry are so important. They know how to make things more predictable, so that if television shows fail, it wont be as spectacular as the Titanic or the Starship Enterprise.
I know it’s hard to understand these jobs, but they are like the people who build the Titanic: They’re the ones who build the ship; they are the ones who run the ship; and they are the ones who ultimately control the ship. As for the Titanic the people who built the ship, they were the ones who got the first job out of it. They had the responsibility to manage the ship; the responsibility to run the ship; and the responsibility to steer the ship.
Its all about the people who run the ship and are responsible for steering it. I think this is why the media has such an influence on how we perceive these jobs. I have friends who work in the entertainment industry, and the number of women they’ve hired over the years has been staggering.
