Is it encouraged to take part in a FWT relatively influenced by your focus of study or rather one quite distant from that focus ? — Asked by Anonymous

I think it’s kind of ok for someone’s first FWT to be a bit out of left field, but it’s preferable to have FWT positions related to what you’re studying, since that’s how you get the more hands-on real world down n dirty of what you may have otherwise only been doing in a classroom setting.


That being said, even if a FWT position doesn’t seem directly related,  it may still be a valuable experience; just because you’re a drama student doesn’t mean that you should do four FWTs with theatre companies. If you can prove that a position is what’s best for you, then go for it, just as long as you can show that you’re thinking about the connections between your education and your experience(s) in the real world.
