Joining any of these groups is a very huge step for media producers and other people looking to gain experience and this is how the future looks like. This is a very important step when it comes to developing your online presence as a professional in the media industry. I came to realise that, the advantage of employers accessing your contacts, is much easier than handing in a Cv. This saves a lot of time and the content is always available for any one to access your technicalities. Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 17.34.56 I have joined a few of these networks and they have given me the opportunity to find numerous opportunities with in the media industry. The biggest advantage is that when you sign in onto one of these networks, every week they send you notifications about new jobs availabilities and people within the same field always share different vacancies. If you want to land hands onto some experience or even paid jobs this is a very effective way of starting and this also enables you to network and communicate to other professionals within the same field.

Although i managed to get in contact with a few of these contacts, most of them did not reply back in time, i guess this is because of their busy schedules but here is more evidence from a few people that replied.
