UTA Joblist 8/24

Hey, see that Amazon box up there? If you click on that before buying something, you’ll help support TAPA, and in return, I’ll keep providing the joblist. It doesn’t cost you anything. Pretty sweet deal, huh?

NOTE: Unless specific permission is given within the listing, DO NOT CALL about positions or to follow up.

Also note, TAPA has nothing to do with the United Talent Agency (although I’m sure they’re very nice people, and if any of them want to represent a young writer with lots of blogging experience, I’d be happy to talk…) I don’t know how to get your job listed on the UTA joblist.

I have no control as to when the joblist is released. It tends to come on Tuesdays and Fridays, but it’s just as often late, or comes but once a week. How these things are determined is beyond me.

To save you time, I usually post just the most recent job listings. There’s not much point in displaying the old ones, since those jobs have been filled already, anyway.

Entertainment Job List

  10. Unanimous PA says:


    I just wanted to say thanks for continuing to post this UTA job list on your site. I got my first full time job out here in LA from this exact source. The posting was made January 24th, I didn’t see it until the 26th, applied, and the very next day I had an interview. I started work on the 31st and have now just finished my 3rd week at my new company. Thanks again, TAPA.

  11. nypa says:

    Are all of these listings for CA??

  12. The Anonymous Production Assistant says:

    They’re almost entirely in Los Angeles. That’s why there’s a section labeled non-LA positions about two-thirds of the way down.

  13. Thanks for providing this amazing material, I am a mobile makeup artist based in bridgnorth and I will be visiting your blog more often!! Thanks :)

  14. Blake Zurbuchen says:


  15. Thank you so much for sharing these with us. I am just getting into them and this will help me enormously!

  16. Zoë E says:

    I’m just about to graduate from Full Sail University with my Science of Film Bachelors. I’m extremely determined, a fast learner and excited to start working! Any Director of Photography/Camera Assistant or Internships ever available on this site?
    Thanks for your time,

  17. Michael DeStefano says:

    Do you have the 7/31 UTA Job list to post?

  18. Denis says:

    Are these positions opened to anyone from around the world, as that I.T. position is quiet an interesting one.

  19. Michael DeStefano says:

    So I am confused now.
    Does the list come out every Tuesday and Friday or just Tuesdays?
    Is there a new one for today?

  20. danny.mancini@yahoo.com says:

    Does anyone belong to any assistant chat rooms or blogs to hear about a potential employer?

  21. George says:

    I normally don’t do this but I feel it’s my duty to advise anyone looking for work on this job list to avoid any positions posted by Shine America or Shine International. Although a large and seemingly respectable company at first, throughout the past few years, Shine America has had nothing but problems and it has gained a poor reputation amongst people within the industry. In the past 3 years, Shine America has been through 3 CEOs. The company spends far too much time and money hiring executives who prove to be useless and not nearly enough time and money fostering an environment of fairness and respect for those who do the real work. They overwork and underpay their support staff. Promotions and raises are insulting at best and that’s if and when they’re awarded which is rare. They produce poor quality shows yet pat themselves on the back more that most companies do. Their business practices are questionable, their HR staff is a joke and what’s worse is, behind closed doors, they realize all of this yet continues to make the same poor choices for their employees and the company itself. You may say, “This is nothing more than the rant of an angry former employee.” and to that I will say, “You’re half right.” I’m not angry at all. I’m simply sharing my knowledge so others can avoid the fate I was subjected to. If you don’t want to be abused, underpaid and overworked, you should avoid this company. It’s as simple as that.

      I am grateful you said this. I know one of their in-house guys (we are in the same bar association) and he’s kinda a dick, too.

    • The Anonymous Production Assistant says:

      The first step is to write in complete sentences, with proper grammar.

      Second, don’t tell anyone you haven’t been working for three years. That’s why I recommend using a resume without dates. Unless you’re top item is a show that hasn’t aired in three years, no one will know. Contact your past employers and tell them you’re ready to work.

  24. Noreen says:

    Love these postings. Thanks so much for doing this!

  25. Mandy Rivera says:

    Thanks you so much for this list!

  26. Hi! I really enjoy your blog and the tidbits you give out! I am currently living in Atlanta, GA, and while I really want to eventually move to LA, and one day become a staff writer, a move isn’t in the cards for at least a year. Are there any shows that you know of with their writing offices in the same city that they shoot in? Most places I call film in Atlanta and write in LA… Any thoughts on whether this dynamic will change with all the new studios headed this way?

    Look forward to any insight you may have!

    Love this. :!what are the odds I would be hired there from toledo ohio?? In your opinion

  28. Lauren says:

    Hi, this is great!

    This post reminded me that I have a question for you..

    I’m not sure if you’ve answered this before as I am a new reader, but I know of two projects specifically that are being produced by, lets say “figure heads,” versus an actual production company (as far as I know) — I am also saying this because I have researched the hell out of the two companies and nothing comes up except for who owns it.

    Anyways, I REALLY want to work on set as a PA for either or both (1 is a feature adapted from a book, 1 is a new multi-camera sitcom)

    Is there ANY way to get in with someone and throw my resume on their pile or talk to someone? Except for meeting someone? I try and network excessively but I haven’t met anyone who knows someone who can give me some tips on how to get in with these production agencies.

    Sorry if its a bit long! More specifically, how do I get a job I WANT versus taking whatever jobs get posted on UTA?


    • TNLA says:

      I’ve been around the block for awhile so I think I’m qualified to answer this. The problem with trying to get on as a set PA for a movie is that most likely that AD already has his staff he knows so it’s hard to get your name in the pile UNLESS you know someone on that show. You can always cold call the production or email the actual address the production lists on production weekly but as a former office PA, I know we hardly ever read that email. It’s a catch-22 you have to know someone to get a job but you can’t get to know anyone unless you have a job. Your best bet is go with the production company. They may have an internship or some other opportunity. Based on my experience its usually easier to start in a production company than go directly into working on say a Christopher Nolan or Steven Spielberg movie. Your best bet, inquire around, keep networking, I would give you my personal email as I’m a big believer in paying it forward but unfortunately this is a pretty public forum and I wouldn’t want my email out there for just anyone to see, but I sympathize with you as I was in the exact SAME position six years ago. Good luck.

      Hello I’m seeking PA work on set in the NYC region currently, possibly LA later in the year. I have experience on-set as a SAG-AFTRA background actor.
      I just graduated Boston University with a B.S. in Film/TV from the College Communication school.

  29. lucy says:


    When will the new UTA List come out? Thanks

  30. Will says:

    I truly appreciate the work you do on this website. I am looking forward to the new list. As a side note, I am a college graduate but I do not have a huge body of work. Where can a person like me find opportunities?

  31. Lease says:

    ^^^ I’m right with you Will! I just recently graduated college, and I feel there is nothing out there for me. Money is running out, and bills are piling up and I need some work–I need some opportunities. I stumbled onto this page and have found it to be quite informative! I guess my main question, is where are some opportunities I could get ahold of. If anyone reads this and doesn’t mind helping me, or paying it forward with an opportunity (lol) my email address is watson_jalisa@yahoo.com.


  32. Anonymous says:

    Hi, just curious… where do these listings come from? you don’t have to name specifically where but do you have inside info, like someone telling you about these or newsletter/job board, etc? because you really don’t see them anywhere else on the internet! thanks so much, this is really helpful.

  33. jobhunter says:

    Any idea on when the next edition of the UTA list will be coming out? It’s been almost a week and I check this site religiously. Or do think there has been a possible delay due to President’s Day and awards season workloads? And thank you for continuing to posting the UTA list!

    • The Anonymous Production Assistant says:

      The list comes when it comes, unfortunately.

      • jobhunter says:

        I figured as much but wanted to ask just in case. Thank you for responding nonetheless! Another question: I have been laboring to get in as an assistant (in a production office, studio, writers’ room, or even personal assistant) and rely heavily on the UTA job List for my applications. I have found it an incredibly valuable resource, especially in comparison to other job sites. We all know about the sad but documented fact that many positions posted on the company websites of larger studios or conglomerates are only posted for legal reasons while an internal hire has already been made. And, of course, Craigslist is a bit of a crap shoot for finding legit gigs versus scams or non-existent jobs posted to get you to pay for a subscription service that simply pulls the ads from the aforementioned company sites. I have had more luck with apps I submitted from postings here in the last few months than on any of the other options in the last several years.

        My question to you is this: do you have any advice that could help an applicant in the interview or phone screening phase? I have gotten a few nibbles – first round phone screenings from major players and jobs applied for through this list and one in-person interview for a personal assistant job – from only my cover letter and resume. Yet I have yet to go beyond that phase. I know my resume is in great shape and that I have all the skills necessary (I was explicitly told as much in one interview, as well as complimented on my interview skills); and those skills sometimes those go above and beyond between my degree, time as an Exec/Admin and Personal Assistant, my entertainment experience, and work as a freelance writer (with works published, and not all in necessarily screenwriting). I am several years out of college, though by no means “old” so I don’t think my age is a factor (I still look about 21, though my resume proves I am not).

        Is there anything else you suggest that I can and should be doing to help my application stand out further or help my interview? Any insider info you could offer? As they say, there’s no award for second place. Or in this case, a job for second place (or third or fourth).

        This, again, may be a shot in the dark for information, but at this point it doesn’t hurt to ask again. Thank you again for your time! It is much appreciated!

    Thank you so much for posting this! I was just wondering, how much in advance would you recommend applying to these jobs? I am free starting in June and am trying to figure out when would be the right time to start applying. Thanks!

    Thank you for posting the joblist!

  39. Natalie says:

    I have been looking for quite some time, but my questions is: do you happen to know the production office number and/or email for television shows that are recruiting PAs or assistants?

  40. KJP says:

    How come there hasn’t been a list up in a while? :( Thank you TAPA for posting it.

  41. Guest says:

    It seems like this is the longest we’ve gone (in recent memory) without a new list. Not good for us job hunters desperate for a career and to make some money. :(

  42. Cch Jobs says:

    A month since the last list.. sigh. I wonder what is up with UTA

  43. Serious Job Applicant says:

    Hello! I was wondering what the chances are of being hired if you live in another state, for example, Michigan. If you send these companies your resume, will they automatically reject you or will they even slightly consider you? I am committed to moving out to LA should I land a job; however, I don’t want to move out there and end up jobless for multiple months.

    • The Anonymous Production Assistant says:

      It is a very lucky and unusual circumstance to have a job before you come out here, at least in production.

      It’s less of an issue for the types of jobs you see on the UTA joblist, but it’s still problematic. A better course of action is to save up and plan on not having a job for a while.

  44. Job Hopeful says:

    If I see a job that has been on here for two postings and I never heard back from them after the first post, should I email them again? If so, do I just pretend that I never sent an email to start off with or do I email to check up?

    Hi APA!

    I have a question for you.

    I’m a film studies student at the University of Sydney (about to graduate) in Australia. I am about to be granted my US working visa. I have plenty of experience (in major global studios and international agency work) – but its all been mostly in Australia. Do you think I will be disadvantaged because of that when applying to jobs? Are production companies/agencies more likely to hire applicants established in Los Angeles because they will have a bigger, more relevant network of contacts, or simply because they’re a US citizen?

    • The Anonymous Production Assistant says:

      There’s a couple of posts on the subject: and . It’s not easy, but it can happen.

    • Nic says:

      Hey! I’m actually some what in the same boat. I’m currently an Australian living in LA studying film. Have you heard of the E3 visa? It is only for Aussies. All you need is a bachelors degree in the field and a letter from the company that is offering you a job. I heard that it is quite easy to obtain as the quota is never filled. Some places may be a little hesitant because it is extra work on their end that they have to do. But as long as they like you and you have the right requirements, I don’t see a problem.

    Thank you so much for keeping your blog and all the great information flowing and going! It’s really brightened my search for a new career, giving me renewed possibilities in life. I will be sure to help others along the way when I have that chance.

  48. Jay says:

    My friends and I have applied to almost every job on this blog but we have never heard back from anyone. And we each have at least three years of film production experience.

  49. Chacha says:

    Does anyone know a way to enter the Entertainment industry with limited to no production experience?
    I graduated with a BA in Communication with a concentration in Film I’ve been trying for over a year to get even the lowest paid positions in the industry. All the job posts I come across say Entry-Level, but require some much experience. I know there is non-paid internships, but I need a paying position. So can anyone help me out?

    • r.u. serious says:

      Are you kidding?! Welcome to LA where competition runs rampant. There are too many people who move here and will readily take a non-paying position to rack up that experience (me!) for ANYONE to come here and apply for a position with none. Unless you’ve got someone on the in, nobody’s going to call you up, when hundreds of other people with more credentials is hiring.
      Dude… seriously?! The fact that colleges teach nothing about job competition and the work force and produce people like you, is just too baffling #ICant

      • Chacha says:

        I don’t know wants up your butt, but I was asking the commenters on this page who are experienced in getting jobs in the industry because no matter if you’re a college graduate or not you need to have some professional background in the industry and that’s what I’m looking for to move higher in the industry.

        So I don’t believe my question is ridiculous especially since you are trying to do the same thing as I the supposed stupid college grad. #ICant

        • Chevy says:

          This guy came at you, but he’s not wrong. When I started in LA I worked a 5 day a week unpaid internship (which on my resume was of course a full time paid asst gig) and to pay the bills I bussed tables at a bar and worked in retail. Yep, I was working 15 hour days 7 days a week – guess what no one’s going to hand you anything. A year later I’m working at a major agency, so yeah it paid off. But I didn’t come out of college thinking that I was just going to be given a job.

    • Welcome to the club! I have a BA in Television Programming and Production, experience as a production office assistant, and over 10 years experience as an executive assistant and I’ve been trying to get a job in the industry since I graduated in late 2009.

    Hi… are you still offering resume consulting?

  51. Dave says:

    Whete can I find work, working on a set as a safety officer or fire prevention?

  52. lababarde says:

    I suggest getting an internship (non-paid) as a production assistant first (indie, commercial, production company or studio) or even signing up with Central Casting – at least you’ll get paid
    by being an background extra on films, commercials. That it will give the possibility to network which is one of the most important tools to get in…it’s who you know.

    Best Wishes!!
    A filmmaker!!

  56. Mandy says:

    When asked if we found the job opening on the UTA list, what do you advise us to say? If we say yes will employers ever ask how we have the list? or do you think they will leave it at that. Just curious.
