We Now Offer TWO Ways to Fix Your Resume!
Resume Consultation Service
Don’t have the time for a one-on-one consultation? Or the money? We hear you! After all, if you’re looking for a job, you don’t have a lot of money lying around. Attend one of our half-hour webinars, and we’ll walk you through the entire process of creating a resume from beginning to end. All for a fraction of the cost of the personalized service. And if you still need that extra special attention, you can discount the price of the webinar from your one-on-one consultation!
We're Here to Help
Breaking into the entertainment industry is hard; so is maintaining a career after it’s been established. You’d like to think your reputation and network will help you find jobs for the rest of your life, but it’s just not always the case. Sometimes you simply have to send out a resume and cover letter.
But what should they look like? How can you put your best foot forward, when it’s just a list of credits? Our team has decades of combined experience, both finding jobs and hiring PA’s and assistants.
Not only that, but one TAPA in particular learned the best way to present your credits by working at a below-the-line agency. We represented department heads of every variety, including DP’s, editors, production designers, even line producers. It turns out, this format works well for PA’s and assistants, too!
In the ninety minute, online session, we’ll show you how to properly format your resume, as well as highlight your skills and experience to increase your chances of getting an interview. Plus, we’ll discuss your career goals, both short and long term, and how best to achieve them.
To get started, send your cover letter and/or resume (in a format I can edit, preferably a word doc) to AnonymousProductionAssistant@gmail.com. Then, we’ll (virtually) meet over Google Doc to discuss what you wrote (and maybe didn’t write). Together, we’ll edit every aspect of it, from the overall structure down to the smallest typo.
The whole process takes about an hour and a half, but by the end of it, you’ll not only know what I changed, but why. It’s a collaborative process, so you can carry that knowledge into the future.
What’s the Cost?
Most of the production assistant resumes I’ve seen online are completely wrong, written by people who clearly have never stepped foot in a production office. And most of them charged upwards of $500 to give you shitty advice.
I won’t charge you that much. The personalized consultation breaks down like this:
That’s it. No surprises, no hidden fees. Plus, you’ll get added to a super-secret mailing list that gets you job notices before they even get posted on the site.
Attending the webinar is even more affordable! You’ll learn all of the do’s and don’ts of resume building in just half an hour.
You Can Do It!
Obviously, I can’t promise you’ll get a job, or even a call back. There are many reasons those things do and do not happen, a lot of which have nothing to do with you. I don’t even get called back most of the time; it’s the nature of the business. But I can promise your resume and cover letter will be a lot more readable and professional.
Payments are done through Paypal, but you don’t have to have an account; a regular credit card will do.
