Landing your first job in the entertainment industry
You’re excited to launch your career. You want – no, you need your first job in the industry, but you don’t know anyone and you don’t know where to start. Here are my recommendations, along with several industry job hunting links.
Here’s the best place to begin – pick up Carole Kirschner’s book, Hollywood Game Plan: How to Land a Job in Film, TV, or Digital Entertainment. Veteran Hollywood exec Carole is a mentor-extraordinaire. She’s the director of the CBS Writer’s Mentoring Program and the WGA Showrunner Training Program. Her book is packed full of stories from successful Hollywood insiders about their first industry experiences. Plus, there is a step-by-step guide of concrete things you can do to navigate the entertainment industry and advance your career.
