There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance.
It's a small industry and who you know counts for a lot
When you start out, try and work for as many people as you can. in my experience, a lot of jobs come from personal contacts offering you a job, rather than interviews - people will always rather work with someone they know (as long as they rate them), than a stranger
My first job was secretary to MDFTel at the BBC, which was Manager, Documentary Features, Television, but my first proper programme job was production secretary on Crimewatch.
I guess was when i was a production co-ordinator on Jonathan Creek / One Foot In the Grave etc, and Susie Belbin arranged for me to have an interview with Richard Woolfe for a research job on Noel's Christmas Presents (which i got, and co-incidentally am series producing now)
