We all know credits and a great showreel can get your foot in the door to the all important interview but recruiters and talent all have stories about the interview that went wrong … very wrong. On Wednesday, 3rd September, we will have industry recruiters Patricia Kung (Animal Logic) and Caitlin Proctor (Rising Sun Pictures), along with Ian Cope (Communications Manager, Rising Sun Pictures) share their stories and advice on how to do your best when you make it to interview.
