Associations

Joining an industry related association is key to successful networking.  It's where you go to meet other people in the business, make contacts with people who work at companies you are interested in working at, and most importantly keep up to date with the latest news and information on the industry.

Adding a section on your resume called "Professional Associations" makes you look like a true professional who is concerned with keeping in the know of all things related to the field.  It shows that you're always networking, involved in industry events and learning about what's going on in the media world.

Here you can find a comprehensive list of television and media related organizations as well as key websites and publications that keep you abreast of industry news.  Most association websites have “jobs’ sections.  Most also offer student memberships.  The dues are usually greatly reduced for students.  Volunteer to work their events to make connections and attend events for free.  ​​Visit our individual pages for the most popular associations.  We provide a description of the organization and related information such as membership requirements and membership fees.  You'll find links to their websites so you can join and learn about sponsored events, conferences and membership benefits.
