Networking is Key

This area of work can be quite competitive when securing a role. 

Networking is a key factor in getting work, many jobs are filled through contacts made while working, so keep a list of contacts you make in the field and stay in touch on a regular basis.

Where can I find experience?

Consider other roles in the wardrobe department, with the stage crew, or in the lighting or sound departments to get experience.
