The film industry might look like it is all about the fun, easy, and glamorous life of the cast, but this is not always the case. People who work in the film industry also have a real job to do in the same way as the people who work in the corporate world do. But what might people from the corporate world learn from the people who work in the film industry? There are a lot of things to learn, actually. The learning one can imply in the film industry can also be applied in the corporate world. This short article can give you a list of some of them.
First, your resume is not enough. Everyone needs to submit a resume for just about any job that they will be applying for. If you will be applying for a job online, the task even becomes more challenging. But then, your resume is not the only reason for you to easily get hired for a job. If you think that you have what it takes to be hired for the position, then the process does not just end there. You have to prove outstanding during your interviews and be able to show a good portfolio, a network, and just do about anything fit for the job that you are applying for.
Second, the movie that you see is really made during its pre-production process. What this implies is that planning is one of the most crucial aspects in whatever project your job entails for you to achieve. When a film has been done accurately in terms of its cast, story, script, and schedule, then both the production and post-production will just run smoothly. When it comes to the corporate world, more or less the same elements apply. If you become part of a corporate team, you have to plan everything from deciding your budget and then running the company. Properly doing your research and planning will no doubt make all the difference in your job.
Third, remember that direction is crucial. No film can exist if there was not any vision to begin with. Furthermore, a film becomes a reality if the vision was properly communicated as well. This is the same with your business. No team will be effective if the leader of the team is not effective. Whatever size your team may be, an effective leader must showcase a clear vision, intelligence, and exception decision-making skills.
And last, it is called a show business not a show of friends. What this means is that you hire people for the job not because they are your friends but because you know that they can do the job right for you. This applies being conscious at the start of things. Always remember that through it all, each member of your business is essential for your business to earn profit. Yes, you need to be generous, helpful, and compassionate. However, you also need to be smart not just with your own money but with your employer’s money as well.
You see, the film industry and the corporate world are not too far off after all?
