Caleb Reid’s Answer
Nowadays, it's (almost) all about who you know in order to get your foot in the door. Like Carol, my career path took off the way it did simply by networking. I connected with a producer who actually had graduated from my high school in 1989. From there, I was able to shadow and work on his show and I met even more people along the way who saw my work ethic, ultimately getting me to where I am now. Use LinkedIn and websites like these to learn and grow your knowledge of the business and find out what opportunities await you to do so. Hope this helps!
