Working in a creative industry is still an incredibly popular career choice among students and school-leavers even though it remains fiercely competitive and earning a good salary can be particularly difficult. This guide is practical in its approach to the sector with the aim to show students what work is really like, the places they are likely to spend their working day and the real job progression prospects. The book also shows the reader what skills and attributes they will have to possess if they are really set on working in the industry and the qualifications expected of them when they start applying for jobs. To give students an idea of how other people have become successful within the industry, the book provides case studies where individuals describe how they entered the industry and what advice they would offer students who want to make a career for themselves in the same industry. Real Life Guides are practical guides for practical people. Each guide looks in detail at what it takes to train for, get into and be successful at a wide range of hands-on careers. Real Life Guides aim to inform and inspire young people and adults alike by providing comprehensive yet hard-hitting information about what it takes to succeed in these fields.
