Finding full time work - never hearing back?
I am a soon-to-be graduate from a Motion Pictures Production program at a public university, located in the United States, coming out with a bachelors degree. Over the past couple months, I've been applying to numerous job postings (corporate video production, not film) without hearing anything back at all - disappointing, after custom-tailoring my resume and cover letter to each position.
Is this normal for the industry? How can I get my foot in the door?
As a side note, what is "worth" putting on a resume in terms of set experience? I've gripped on numerous student thesis productions, and will be DPing one in the near future - neither of which are on my resume.
If anybody is willing to take a look and offer advice, I am more than happy to provide resume and portfolio via direct message. Thanks in advance for any help I may get!
