If you feel like you’re having trouble finding that TV job you want on your usual job boards, maybe it’s time to expand your search outside the U.S. border.
Tracy Gibson was looking to work as a reporter but wanted to work somewhere unusual.
“I submitted my demo reel I did with [Reel Media Group] in January to a news station called hgptv.com in Guyana, South America,” she told Reel Media Group. “I found the news station on YouTube, sent my demo reel there, and was contacted by one of the owners. We talked about my aspirations and what kind of news I wanted to do, and they felt it was a match.”
She starts her new job in September.
The moral of the story? Don’t limit yourself to the usual. You might find some opportunities you might have missed otherwise.
