In addition, they also provide first-hand insight into industry protocol, providing tips on interviewing, etiquette, career planning and more, information you simply won't find in any other book.The book concludes with a chapter featuring Q plusA sessions with various established Hollywood editors about what they expect from their assistant editors.
