#JMKSpace: Assistant/Resident/Associate Director – What does it all mean?
What’s the difference between an assistant director and a resident director? What does an associate director actually do? This workshop with Maria Crocker aims to define assistant/resident/associate roles and share various pathways available to directors who are interested in working in these positions. We will discuss practical steps to approach an application, how to prepare for an interview and what to expect on the job.
This workshop is open to all and there are 30 places available.
The workshop will take place 6.30 – 8.30 p.m on Thursday 22nd October on Zoom.
