Getting a job in this industry can be like finding a needle in a haystack, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for mediocrity. It’s important to remember that the most coveted position is a state of mind, and you’ll need to put your best foot forward if you want a shot at the big time. From hiring to training to securing that first job, there are plenty of pitfalls to avoid along the way.
