What jobs are there in the entertainment industry? And how can you claim accident at work compensation if you are injured?
The entertainment industry isn’t difficult to break into if you know what you are doing, and are prepared to start at the bottom and work your way up. The problem is, if you don’t know enough about getting into the industry, you might not be able to find even a low level job that will accept you, to enable you to work your way up.
This is why it is important that you know what lower level jobs there are, which will put you in the right place at the right time when you want to make the next step. All you have to do is impress a few people in the industry, and then you already have a huge step up from those people who try to enter the industry in their dream job.
- Runner – For those that want to be involved in the most glamorous sides of the entertainment industry, such as television or film, starting as a runner can be a fantastic way to get started, get your face and name known, and start out even if you don’t have any experience just yet. A runner basically does what the job title suggests, running from place to place doing chores that need doing.
- Extra – An extra is another way to get into film or television, and even get to see yourself on screen. You will be paid for the hours that you do, and can appear with some of your favourite stars in the biggest movies and tv shows of the year.
- Assistant – This works for almost any area of the entertainment industry, and if you are working as an assistant you get to work directly with the people that eventually will be able to get you your dream job. As an assistant you can prove yourself to be invaluable and it shouldn’t be hard to move up the career ladder.
