Seeking New Assistant

Get me a grande non-fat latte with cinnamon on top.

This has nothing to do with the words below. Really.

Shawn, well known to many of you, is moving up in the company and switching desks soon. That leaves me without an assistant, and hence this post.

I’m looking.

The ideal candidate is completely wild about movies, TV, videogames, music, internet culture and books (theater, not so much). Experience on the desk of an agent, manager, development exec or attorney is a plus. You have to be smart, punctual, organized, good-humored, have thick skin, work well with colleagues and cater to the whims of the really famous and the self-important people that hover about them. My desk is busy, so being able to handle my schedule as well as the schedules of many clients is essential.

It helps if you want to work at an agency to be an agent, but it’s not required. I’ve hired attorneys in the past and that’s tended to work out well for everyone. A college degree is necessary, but where you went to school isn’t that important. Attitude, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn count for a lot more.

Interested or know someone who is? You know how to find me.

UPDATE: Thanks to Julia Allison for mentioning my search on NonSociety – I’ve gotten some great resumes from her post. To clarify: the position is in Los Angeles and yes, it’s EXACTLY the same as it appears in “Entourage”.

UPDATE #2: Go Twitter! Someone saw my tweet about this post and emailed a friend who sent me a resume. Looks like I’ve found my new assistant. Thanks everyone for the interest in the position.

    I know someone – she’s smart, fresh out of school, hard-working and bright. Very, very smart. I can get you a resume and contact info tomorrow if you want.

    Hi George,

    I read your post and I think that I could be an ideal candidate as an assistant. I am wild about movies, books, games ( love World of warcraft! ), music and anything that can be part of the industry. I don’t have experience in working for an exec or agent..but I do work with a producer of a film production in florida and do web design as well. I’m loyal and love to get things done. You could talk to my boss if you want to know more about me. I can also send you my resume.

    Best regards,
