RTV441 – Assignment #3
So now that you’ve almost nailed down your personal brand, it’s time to sell it. But, to who? Your personal and professional network will evolve and grow over the length of your career, it’s time to get it started now. In the old days, you had a rolodex. Then, there were emails. And then MySpace, Facebook and Monster and Twitter and Instagram. Who knows where you will maintain your networks in the decades to come, but the important thing is to make sure that it’s maintained somewhere. In recognition of your impending leap into the “real world”, you will be putting together a list of contacts in the industry. While, you don’t need to contact them – of course, you can if you’d like, but that is not part of the assignment – you do have to verify that the contact information is up to date.
WHAT YOU’RE HANDING IN:
LinkedIn, Excel, Word, Rolodex….there are a lot of places to keep your contacts. Use the platform that works for you. For this assignment you will present an organized, robust, and well researched collection of contacts in the industry. Companies, producers, colleagues – there are literally thousands of possibilities in the Toronto area alone. Also, provide a quick outline of your sources.
Include as much information as possible (including, but not limited to):
