    Hi there,
    This is a very cool site. I live in New York City and am about to finish up my time as a Page at a popular talk show. I am eagerly aiming for my next job to be as an Executive Assistant at some sort of network. Any tips on where and how to apply to such jobs? Thanks much.

    • Sidra says:

      Hey Tyler. I just applied for the page program in NYC. I haven’t heard anything back. I’m located in LA right now, but I have family out there so transitioning wouldn’t be a problem. Is the page program worth the hassle and if so is there a number you could give me so I could call them?
