What does it take to get a job with Discovery Communications?

My dream job is to be a Marketing or Project Coordinator for Discovery Communications. I have applied to several similiar postings over the past year with no response.

I would really appreciate any tips or recomendations from Discovery employees or previous employees. Thanks.
