NSDF 20: How to get your first job in Producing
A workshop about getting your first job, could be producing, or theatre management, administration, marketing, production, fundraising, education, outreach...... any job that isn't on the stage basically. We will talk about what employers are looking for, look at what works and what doesn't work on your CV, and most importantly, do some hands on interview technique practice. We'll cover what kind of questions you might be asked, how best to answer them, and do role play where you get to practice your interview technique and ability to answer questions well in a safe space.
