It is very important for your future career to make contacts with professionals in the industry because they not only help you gain your first work experience but also give good advice. Dianne Gillies is certain that in this industry networking is one of the key activities.
Use Relevant Online Services
Planit is the website for students in Scotland where they can search for opportunities and jobs in the cultural sector. Creating the service, the authors surveyed students and found out none of them used websites that publish calls and recommendations targeting cultural practitioners. So, Dianne Gillies suggests that you check not only general platforms while looking for a job, but also specific online careers resources like Creative Choices or Creative Skillset. Also, look at the websites of professional associations working in your field and country.
Use online networks to keep abreast of recent news and offers from different cultural organisations. In addition, Facebook, Twitter, and blogs can be a platform for expressing yourself and showcasing your work.
