14. Making Sense of Reality  > Cultivating a Career

CULTIVATING A CAREER

Although reality television is not internationally renowned for giving rise to enduring careers, there are numerous ways to extend the fleeting momentum awarded by reality television success into a lasting, gratifying career.

For starters, even if your passion burns exclusively for reality television, don’t naı¨vely limit yourself to producing strictly within the unscripted genre. Be prolific and creative in as many facets of television production as possible. The experience and credibility you’ll gain by doing so can be parlayed into a host of opportunities behind the scenes if and when your reality show tanks or fails to even launch.

Just as important is having consistent awareness so that you avoid growing stagnant or complacent. Network and audience preferences evolve constantly. If you, too, can uninterruptedly mold your work to the programming whims that surround you, your product will always be fresh, your ideas will remain cutting-edge, and your odds of staying employed will be excellent.
