The first job I decided to look into, for the job roles it involves is the ASSISTANT STROYLINER. This job has appealed and brought my attention to it because I have a creative mind and I really, really enjoy coming up with ideas from ideas, brought from many, many sources. This job would be appropriate for me because you must enjoy telling stories and coming up with creative ideas to give them out and create something tactical from it. I have read through the job purposes, accountabilities/responsibilities, and the knowledge skills & experience involved. This job role also is ideal for me because I can listen to others to what they have to share as an idea and maybe elaborate on that. I have also been working in drama since I was a child; this has brought me confidence and a good strong imagination to hold for future references.

The second job role I looked into was closely related to the first one I used. This job role is more about organization and getting involved with different ideas rather than creating them yourself from scratch. Furthermore, I would be great for this job from the skills and experience I have already had, and currently receiving during the Media course at Mid Cheshire College. The job is FULL TIME, so I would have to be ‘on the ball’ all of the time. You must be alert and wanting to put in your full potential, although the hours may be inflexible! I also would be expected to hold out management skills for the main story consultant/series producer.
