Hire me as your writer's assistant! And other favors

It's favor time!

Pilot season is in full swing, so I'll renew a plea I made last pilot/staffing season that anyone who's looking for a writer's assistant, please contact me.  I realize that a fair number of my readers are my competition for those jobs, but I'm sure that there's a percentage of my readership who might be doing the hiring than the job seeking. If you're enough of a fan that you read my blog regularly, you'll probably like me in person.  Another blogger whom I won't embarass by naming once told me that in person, I'm not the asshole I sometimes come across as here.

Favor #2 - Anyone have any insight into how I might be able to get press credentials for San Diego Comic Con?  I know there are some smaller outfits that have managed to pull this off in the past.

I could have sworn I had a third favor to ask.  Dammit, it's definitely Friday.

Oh yeah!  I've been reinstated on Google+. Feel free to add me.

  2. When I saw the subject line, I swore you were going to go off on people who ask for favors to be assistants...
    But hey, hire me too! :)

  3. Good luck.
    But please don't abandon the blog when you get the gig. It's a great resource and a fun read.

  4. Don't go anywhere until you have a solid gig. I'm working for a temp/placement agency for Hollywood right now, and we just aren't getting in the jobs. There's a flood of recent college graduates with film degrees looking for entry level jobs, and we have to tell the that people with 5-10 years experience are snatching those up.

  5. Hey Steve the Creep,

    I'm looking to move out to LA by the end of the year. What would you recommend for someone who will be looking for a job at that point? What experience can I gain NOW so that I'll be more valuable in a year?

  6. If you're looking for Comic Con press passes I believe that there's a form you have to fill out and when you send it in, you have to send in whatever articles you've written to prove you're a legit journalist (or blogger in your case.) All the info is on their website under the PRESS hyperlink.

  7. I'm a newer reader and I was going to comment on the SDCC Press link... but since that's been taken care of, I hope to see you there (more than likely I'll be signing at the Arcana booth)!
