We all know that leaving full-time education or changing careers is hard and money is scarce, so we have made MFJTV a free platform to apply for ALL the available jobs and opportunities. However, some of you may need a little helping hand or be stuck between jobs. That's why we offer our PRO Membership. Its there to give your career a boost, but what is involved, is it worth the money?
We all want to skip the queue and land our dream jobs yesterday! However, there is no shortcut, just lots of wrong turns that lead to frustration. I am here to keep you on the right path and guide you through what arguably are the hardest years of your career.
Having natured the careers of so many, from runners to producers, I am confident that I can boost your career - as long as you are willing to work hard!
The personal mentoring and coaching I offer to my PRO Members has three parts to it:
‘Manage your Own Career’ - via monthly telephone or Skype sessions we can start with getting the basics of CVs and cover letters sorted, then ensure you are applying for the right roles to you. I can give feedback, ensure you do all the right research and know about all the right places to look for work. I will also identify weaknesses in your application we can work together to remove so you quickly become the best candidate possible. It will be hard work and it takes time, but if you are motivated, you will succeed, I promise.
Meet with Me - every month at our networking events, you can informally chat with leading industry figures and fellow runners. Plus we can meet and go over your progress. Its important to build relationships, these events are an excellent means to do that.
My Little Black Book - once you are ready and after we have met, I will open up my Little Black Book to you, were there is over 20 years of contacts throughout the industry. No guarantees can be made but hopefully, we can find you some work .
Having worked in the industry for nearly 20 years, people are always asking me for CVs for people to hire. This can range from a LP to a Runner. These are often last minute, urgent jobs, that are not advertised anywhere.
All PRO Members will be on my distribution list and will receive details of these roles. The frequency, variety and locations will vary month to month but you will have access to all the requests that come across my desk.
To be on the list, we have to have met, I like to know my runners, who they are and ensure they are the best
