I wanted to remind all of you that the TAPA podcast will be coming very soon. I’m titling it Crew Call: The Below the Line Podcast. Because it’s not just for PAs; it’s for the whole crew.
Often times, we know our jobs very well, but have very little understand of what other departments are up to. On Crew Call, I’ll be interviewing everyone from electricians to location managers to costumers. For those of you new to the business, I hope Crew Call can give you some guidance in what direction you’d like your career to go. For more experienced people, I hope you’ll gain a new appreciation for the impressive and difficult work of those around you.
It’s a bit of an undertaking, which is why I’m launching a Kickstarter campaign next week. I’ll be offering exclusive rewards, like a TAPA T-shirt, and even the chance to select the guests I talk to.

Also coming on Sunday: the second TAPA gathering! If you couldn’t make it last time, you should definitely come this time. It’s a pool party this time, even. At least, there will be a pool there. I doubt anyone will actually get wet. On purpose.
You should RSVP on Facebook, and then share that with your friends. The more the merrier, after all.

In other TAPA news, there’s a new UTA Joblist on the site. I usually announce on new joblists on Twitter, but I thought I ought to remind those of you who get TAPA on your RSS reader that I still get these updates on a semi-weekly basis.

Speaking of stuff that happens on a semi-weekly basis– at least twice a week, someone asks if I still offer my resume service. Yes, I do.
It’s pretty simple. Send me your resume, and I’l tell you whether or not I can improve it. If I can, I’ll send you a bill; if I can’t, I’ll tell you.
Besides fixing up the resume, I’ll also send you job notices that I’ve been asked not to distribute publicly. (Happens more than you’d think.) It’s not a bad deal, if I do say so myself.
