There’s no way to truly know what a career in radio or film is like until you speak to someone who’s done it, but the beauty of our event is that there will be speakers from a range of backgrounds; full-time employees, freelancers, entrepreneurs and newly-employed people. This means the speakers will be able to talk frankly about *all* the different career stages and various routes into the industry, so you can get helpful advice on how to get started, as well as career progression once you’ve got your foot in the door, so you can be well on your way to landing that dreamy position…
