Your experience and portfolio will speak for you on your CV. Video editors will look at your work experience as soon as they receive your application. Don’t worry if you don’t have experience, you can always apply for apprenticeships programmes within a Media company.

Not everyone will be lucky enough to be accepted to an apprenticeship so in that case you will build your own portfolio yourself. How about start up a Youtube channel?
