As part of our Women and the Hall season the Royal Albert Hall is hosting several events which will give those looking to begin a career in the arts sector invaluable insight from key female figures in their respective industries.
Ahead of special music industry panel event in the auditorium on 14 March we asked industry experts from the worlds of film, photography, music and events their top advice for anyone looking to land a job in their field of work.
The invaluable guidance below is by no means exclusive to the creative industries and comes from leading women from very different backgrounds, treading very different paths to get where they are now. A key theme shared is one of persistence and tenacity. There are many options and avenues to help you realise your dreams, never doubt how far your enthusiasm and determination will get you.
