    How often should I check this page for new jobs? Got any tips for Atlanta PA’s?

  2. Drew says:

    Hey unemployed in Atlanta… better bet would be the Georgia Film Office help wanted site, craigslist. Also, attend some Atlanta Film Festival 365 classes/meetings.

  3. Josie says:

    Do you mostly focus on LA or do yu post jobs for all over the country? I have experience but have had no luck getting personal or production assistant work in Portland OR.

    • Jake says:

      I live in Eugene part-time and I only get about 1 legit paying gig every 2-3 months. And their always prod. companies from out-of-state. Portland has more opportunity but if you wanna get busy, gotta go down to LA. That’s what I do! Cheers!

  4. Taylor says:

    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?

  5. Pitso says:

    hi, i am from Lesotho(Africa) and i have an associate degree in Film & TV Production. i want to move to New York City to get an entry level job in the industry. do you think i can earn enough as a PA to sustain myself?

    • Stefanie says:

      Unfortunately no. I work as A PA for NBC Universal and I do not make enough to pay 1335.00 rent a month and I dont even live in NY in NY the prices are ridiculous for a 1 bedroom apartment. maybe if you got a part time job bar tending as well then you could make ends meet.

      • kieralewis says:

        Stephanie, I’m interested in being a PA for NBC Universal or more specifically Focus Features, do you have any advice for connecting with a real person there?

    Hello,
    Many of these don’t list a location. I live in Atlanta and am always on the lookout for positions, but it’s hard to know which ones I can apply for because they are often not labeled for location. Would there be any way you could label the postings with their locations somehow? Thanks very much. Love your blog.
