Make sure you read their web site first before applying to ensure you know something about their business and their programmes. No point sending your CV to a company that only makes drama if you only want to make documentaries. To be honest, simply uploading your CV onto a database is unlikely to bring significant results. It’s easy to get lost in the pile, so don’t rely on that. Find a name, someone in Human Resources or a Production Manager or Producer, acquire their email address (if it’s not on-line you could try calling the switchboard of the relevant company and asking them) and send them a personal email outlining your skills and interests.time.
