Why should you bother paying a subscription to My First Job In Film? Is it worth the money? Will it help you find work? Read on....
When you are starting out its one of the most frustrating times, where are all the good jobs? It seems like there is an inner circle of people who find out about them and once you are part of that group you have made it. Well, that has got some truth to it.
But being part of MFJF we bring that inner circle of jobs to you! We network, meet, phone, email and generally cajole the industry to get you the sought after, career building jobs that you desperately want. Our network is big, and its at your disposal!
Every job posted on our job board will have been vetted to ensure the job meets our strict standards and the reputation of the company or production is professional and established. We actually reject jobs every single day as many don't meet our standards. This includes adherence to the Creative Skillset Guidelines.
Recent productions to post their roles on our site include:
- Star Wars - The Last Jedi
- Mamma Mia 2
- Bohemian Rhapsody
Its hard finding a job!! So ask for help!
