Today we posted a job on Mandy, a good source of film and television work. Someone applied that we were interested in hiring. I need to find someone fast because we’ve had our deadline brought forward. I looked at their profile, no mobile number listed. On their website, they had a dedicated contact page and yet it was blank of any contact details. I downloaded their TV Editor CV, and the mobile phone number on it was dead. So I have work to offer this editor, and yet they will never know they missed out on two day’s work, possibly more, and the chance to make a new contact.
Contact details matter
This person is only contactable by email, but I can’t wait because I have a deadline to meet. I want to call, connect and book, all in five minutes. So I pick up the phone and call the next person on this list. That’s the reality of some recruitment decisions. No matter how good your showreel, how to write a TV Editor CV is an important skill to learn. Don’t suffer the same problem, make sure you write clear, working contact details on all your job website profiles and CVs.
