Where The TV Jobs Are Now (And Not)
Survive 'til ‘25 is the new mantra as cuts keep coming. We identify what's growing, opportunity, and what you're likely not considering
Welcome back to Series Business, week three. It’s the start of February, aka “This is when the industry gets back to normal, right? (Please say yes).”
But the old normal is never coming back, and the new normal is still taking shape as development and staffing gingerly ramp up again, while the studio bloodletting continues everywhere from Amazon to the imperiled Paramount.
So in today’s newsletter we’ll go over, yes, bleakness, hurdles, but also the market opportunities you might not be thinking of if you aren’t working, are worried you might not be soon, or are thinking about a job (or career) change. We know it’s a stressful time. In this newsletter, we’ll talk about:
The career fields still growing in Hollywood at studios and elsewhere (yes that includes agents and managers!).
The area you’re probably not thinking of for new jobs.
Where executive recruiters are placing Hollywood pros.
The future of creative jobs for the next 12-18 months.
Think fast! (Er, FASTs)
Expat, anyone? The foreign country you could consider.
Whether gaming is still a viable plan B for entertainment execs.
